Clients hire professionals including lawyers, accountants, and architects and engineers, with a certain level of confidence in their abilities and credentials, an expectation of professionalism and experience. When results do not match client expectations – regardless of the circumstances – the response can be to blame the professional and sue.
Included within the skill set of our Professional Negligence practice group is the defense of claims brought against directors & officers and other professional for alleged breaches of the standard of care and breach of fiduciary duties owed. Our experience ranges from defending claims of liability, disputes over credentialing and defending professionals in disciplinary matters.
It is our job to protect and defend the professional clients and fiduciaries we serve, helping them manage the risks inherent to their practice, and advising and representing them if the need arises. We serve a wide variety of clients, in all areas, including legal, accounting, and design professionals. From publicly held firms to small partnerships to sole proprietorships, we have the specialized experience and expertise to help our clients avoid, manage and survive litigation.
