Lawyer Malpractice and Ethics Consulting

The attorneys of the Professional Liability Group have a long history defending lawyers against malpractice claims. We have been counsel of record on some of the most significant decisions in this area, including those issued by the Supreme Court of Ohio.

We represent lawyers ranging from solo practitioners to partners in large multinational law firms, and defend against claims arising from a wide array of underlying legal matters, from the routine to the complex:

  • Bankruptcy
  • Business Transactions
  • Collections and FDCPA
  • Criminal
  • Domestic Relations
  • Employment
  • Estate and Probate
  • Commercial and Tort Litigation
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Medicare/Medicaid
  • Patent and Intellectual Property
  • Real Estate
  • Securities

We regularly represent lawyers in contempt and sanctions proceedings, and have substantial experience representing lawyers who serve as fiduciaries, including in adversarial proceedings before the probate court.

Our attorneys provide ethics consulting services and assist in remedying potential claims. We advise on lawyer trust accounts, conflicts of interests, office sharing arrangements, professional liability insurance, and other areas of risk related to law practice management.
