The Professional Liability Defense Federation™ is committed to expanding opportunities for all members of the legal defense and claims management professions. We recognize that support for all, including those historically underrepresented in our fields of practice, is central to American life and business. Juries — our decision-makers — reflect North America’s diversity. We consider it vital that legal and claims professionals expand their awareness of cultural impacts on verdict decision-making and case presentation strategies respectful of these differences. Accordingly, PLDF supports diversity in our member recruitment efforts, in our committee and association leadership positions, and in the choices of counsel, expert witnesses and mediators involved in professional liability claims.
