For more than 25 years, RAWLE & HENDERSON’s Architects & Engineers Practice Group has successfully defended architects, engineers and other design professionals throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. The Architects & Engineers group represents client interests in all aspects of architectural and engineering malpractice defense, including litigation involving contract, tort, and breach of warranty issues.

In addition to defending claims in state and federal courts as well as alternative dispute forums, the Architects & Engineers Practice Group protects clients’ interests by frequent reporting on risk management and contract issues, including indemnity clauses and limitation of liability, to reduce the exposure on future claims. Based on their dedication and success in these areas, design professionals and their insurers across the region have come to rely on the Architects & Engineers attorneys’ reputation for excellence in defense.

The Architects & Engineers Practice Group has also been involved in the loss prevention programs of its clients which assign matters to counsel to represent their interests pre-suit when initially notified of a potential claim. The Architects & Engineers attorneys have an excellent success rate in resolving these matters without the need for the expense and delay of litigation.
