Professional Liability Defense

Professionals today face increased scrutiny and liability exposure. These risks are rooted in a combination of factors, including government enforcement trends, legislative changes, and a legal environment where the work professionals are engaged in is demanding and heavily scrutinized.

In addition, professionals risk being individually named in litigation and government actions. Moreover, a targeted professional’s employer or insurer may not always abide by their responsibilities for indemnification, advancement, or coverage.

We have successfully defended accountants, accounting firms, lawyers, law firms, and other professionals in:

  • Malpractice cases
  • Negligence claims
  • Business litigation
  • Enforcement matters by regulators and government agencies, including the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB)

Our comprehensive understanding of the rules and regulations governing accountants and lawyers, particularly those related to public company practice, has translated into effective and efficient representation of our clients. We are also experienced in obtaining protection for targeted individuals from employers and insurers and, in the case of targeted firms, responsible parties, including insurers.

Being a target of a lawsuit or enforcement matter can be one of the most difficult experiences of a professional’s career. With our team on your side, however, you can rest more easily that we will get you through the process, get those who are obligated to pay for your defense to pay, and get to the very best conclusion available.
