Professional Services

It’s a dangerous world out there – and law firms are not immune from those dangers. Longstanding clients are increasingly willing to second guess their lawyers when things don’t go according to plan. Even non-clients who claim they relied on someone else’s lawyer’s advice are bringing multi-million dollar claims. And in many cases, claims are brought by people the lawyer never dealt with – like receivers or bankruptcy trustees – who have absolutely no hesitancy in suing a law firm.

Our lawyers help other lawyers navigate these dangerous waters. We know how legal malpractice claims can tear at the very fabric of a law firm. Our lawyers not only know the legal framework for these claims, but they also understand how law firms are run. We help law firms prevent problems before they happen, for example by assisting in conflict resolution and client intake. When problems do arise, we defend those claims that should be resisted, and we help resolve those that need to go away. In each case, we partner with our clients – whether AMLAW 100 firms or solo practitioners – to get the matter resolved at the earliest opportunity. While the firms we help are our competitors in other areas, we’re on the same page when it comes to protecting our profession.
