All our lawyers act regularly in cases involving matters of professional liability, whether we act for the professionals or for their clients. We often deal with issues of professional negligence and breach of fiduciary duties with respect to lawyers, engineers, securities dealers, financial advisors and insurance agents.
We are aware of the devastating impact that a professional’s negligent acts may have on his or her clients, no matter how sophisticated or knowledgeable those clients may be. We act as powerful advocates on behalf of our clients who have been wronged by various professionals.
At the same time, we know how frustrating a frivolous claim against a professional can be. We know how important it is to any professional to maintain his or her good reputation. As lawyers, we know that confidential means confidential but we also appreciate how upsetting professional liability claims can sometimes be and we take extra care to be sensitive to our clients’ privacy concerns.
Where appropriate, we encourage and facilitate the early resolution of claims through motions, mediations and the old-fashioned but tried-and-true method of pick-up-the-phone negotiation. Where a resolution is unwelcome or impossible, we defend our clients at trial and we are proud of our firm’s trial track record.
