The Professional Liability Defense Federation appointed FKB’s Andrew Jones as Co-Vice Chair of its Lawyers’ Professional Liability Committee. The Professional Liability Defense Federation is an association of malpractice defense professionals who work together to promote the successful defense of professional liability claims. The LPL Committee is the PLDF’s largest, with a focus on preventing and managing legal malpractice claims.
Andrew previously spoke at the 2013 Annual Meeting and CLE/CEU Presentation of the Professional Liability Defense Federation, where he led an interactive discussion regarding common ethical and practice issues raised by representation; specifically, the common interest doctrine and whether communications between an attorney and his/her malpractice carrier are privileged from disclosure in a subsequent malpractice action. Andrew also published a Quarterly article entitled “How to Avoid Being Sued When Collecting Legal Fees” in the Spring 2015 edition of Professional Liability Defense Quarterly, and is a regular contributor to PLDF’s weekly LinkedIn site.
