represent professionals. Doctors, lawyers, nurses, health care providers, CPAs,
architects, engineers, brokers and others depend upon Lane, Alton & Horst
for counsel with respect to their professional ethical obligations and their
addition, we take special pride in the fact that many individuals and their
families entrust their personal legal affairs to our attorneys on an ongoing
basis. Individuals seek our guidance on such matters as estate planning and
other family matters.
We have also represented the
interests of the State of Ohio. Among other noteworthy engagements, during the
early 1970's, the law firm served as Special Counsel to the Ohio Superintendent
of Insurance with respect to the conservatorship of Ohio Valley Insurance
Company, a high-risk insurance company. This was the first insolvency under the
then-new Ohio Insurance Guaranty Act. More recently, the law firm was retained
by the Ohio Insurance Guaranty Association to defend over 350 pending medical
malpractice actions as a result of the insolvency of the insurance carrier.
Lane, Alton & Horst resolved 100% of these cases without any financial
participation by any of the physician defendants we were asked to represent.
