About the Professional Liability Defense Federation
The Professional Liability Defense Federation™ is a not-for-profit organization designed to bring together attorneys, claims professionals and risk management specialists to share expertise and information helpful to the successful defense of professional liability claims.
To accomplish its mission PLDF publishes the journal Professional Liability Defense Quarterly, sponsors an annual meeting offering valuable law development seminars and networking opportunities, offers amicus support in important appellate proceedings, maintains an expert witness data bank compiling information on forensic witnesses, and by its web log or “blog” facilitates information sharing of importance to professionals working in the errors and omissions field.
As well, professional liability insurers may write coverage for different professions. Thus, PLDF brings together experienced practitioners involved in malpractice defense, professional liability claims administration, and errors and omissions insurance throughout the United States to improve the defense, cost climate and outcomes of professional liability claims.
