The measure of the quality of our practice is reflected in the reputation and demands of our clients, who come from a wide range of professions and leading consultancies. We counsel accountants, lawyers, doctors, and other professionals in civil matters that affect their livelihood, reputation, license, and right to practice.


Our attorneys litigate professional liability matters in state and federal courts and other forums—including arbitrations—throughout the country.

accounting

For 30 years, the firm has represented leading professional firms in complex and high-stakes matters. Our successes encompass virtually every type of case in which accountants and accounting firms can be exposed to liability, including common law fraud and malpractice and securities fraud matters, as well as investigations by the SEC and PCAOB.

HEALTH CARE

In the health care industry, we represent doctors, researchers, and other medical professionals in defending against allegations of professional misconduct, fraud, and negligence. We have represented physicians in investigations and proceedings involving licensing matters, allegations of kickbacks, billing practice issues (including alleged Medicaid fraud), entitlement to medical staff hospital privileges, and asserted research irregularities.

LEGAL INDUSTRY

We represent law firms and individual lawyers in professional liability actions. We also appear before state grievance committees and courts on behalf of lawyers facing accusations of misconduct, and we have successfully represented disbarred and suspended attorneys seeking reinstatement to the bar. We have been retained by law firms that are defending against disqualification from a case, and we have represented lawyers facing criminal charges.

OTHER PROFESSIONALS

Insurance brokers, architects and engineers, and other professionals and consultants frequently have retained our litigators to defend them when their businesses are at risk and their most important asset—their reputation—is on trial.
