Jessica Kirkwood Alley practices in the area of professional liability defense, focusing on the litigation of errors and omissions and professional malpractice claims against lawyers, insurance agents, financial professionals, title agents, architects, and engineers. 

Ms. Alley also has broad experience in representing clients in a variety of complex commercial litigation matters. She has represented clients in commercial contract disputes, securities fraud litigation, trademark infringement suits, trade secret disputes, construction disputes and commercial landlord/tenant matters. In the area of health care fraud, Ms. Alley has defended high-profile False Claims Act qui tam actions.  She has also provided counseling to insurers in construing insurance policies and litigated numerous declaratory judgment actions on behalf of domestic and foreign insurers.

In addition to her legal practice, Ms. Alley serves on the firm’s E-Discovery Team and helps guide the firm’s efforts to ensure that our lawyers are on the cutting edge of the evolving legislative and jurisprudential rules which govern electronic discovery and have the best tools available to efficiently collect, review and produce electronic data for the firm’s clients.
