Professional Negligence and Legal Ethics
Kinkead & Stilz has defended professionals ranging from family lawyers, audit CPAs, and structural engineers, to commercial realtors.
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 in 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.
