Professional Negligence and Legal Ethics
Professional responsibility issues are a crucial consideration in business planning and litigation. Because business regulation is growing more complex, the work of attorneys and other professionals as advisors intensifies.
Ethical questions and conflicts often seem to spring up. We have experience advising professionals – especially attorneys – respecting their obligations before situations become problematic for them or their clients. Careful planning can usually address most situations, and, even when a problem cannot be entirely avoided, taking the appropriate corrective action substantially reduces risks to the parties and their counsel. We can help.
There are times when litigation cannot be avoided and when actions are taken that threaten professionals and their licenses. Sometimes, complaints are filed with licensure boards. We have experience representing professionals before those boards. When professionals are faced with difficult claims, we can efficiently and effectively handle these matters so that they can get back to doing their jobs helping clients.
