Professional Liability

Donohue Brown lawyers routinely defend high-stakes malpractice suits for some of the Chicago area’s top professionals. We represent doctors, hospital, lawyers, architects, engineers, accountants, brokers and other licensed professionals and their firms in matters spanning myriad claims of damages, both personal and financial.

Our lawyers work closely with some of the nation’s largest and most prestigious hospitals and their insurance carriers, many of whom have been clients of the firm since it was founded in 1995. We successfully defend doctors practicing in every field of medicine.

We are the law firm of choice to defend lawyers, a fact recognized by U.S. News Best Law Firms, which ranks us in the top tier of firms in Chicago for legal malpractice defense. 

Major insurance carriers underwriting legal malpractice claims turn to Donohue Brown to handle matters involving a number of sophisticated legal issues, including alleged securities fraud, conflicts of interest, fiduciary breaches, domestic relations, estates and trusts, taxation, environmental and real estate, among others.




DBMS attorneys continue to work remotely in compliance with the Governor's ongoing shelter in place order and to ensure the safety of our clients, employees and colleagues. In addition to focusing on the work entrusted to us by our clients before the Covid-19 pandemic, we are assisting our clients in protecting medical caregivers from being compelled to turn away from their patients to participate in litigation activities that can wait until the virus is under control.

We salute the medical providers who are valiantly risking their personal safety for the benefit of all of us. Thank you. You are heroes.
