Architects, Engineers and Construction+

Construction litigation has long been a part of Gallagher Sharp’s professional liability practice. We represent architects, engineers, and contractors in commercial, industrial, and residential construction matters and are panel counsel for insurance carriers in the construction field.  Design and construction claims, tort cases arising out of construction accidents, disputes between contractors and owners, property damage, and construction delay are a regular part of our practice.

Real Estate Agents and Brokers+

Our professional liability attorneys defend residential and commercial real estate agents, brokers, home inspectors, title agents, and title companies and other professionals in claims alleging errors and omissions. We counsel real estate professionals on ethics, risk and practice management issues and provide representation in licensing and disciplinary matters.  Our work in this area has grown in recent years, as real estate professionals face an increasing number of claims and lawsuits as a result of the recent economic downturn and mortgage crises.

Gallagher Sharp regularly defends accountants in claims arising from accounting services, alleged misrepresentations on audits, stock redemption agreements, and corporate valuations.  Claims alleging fraud, improper tax accounting, conflicts of interest and errors in escrow services are other common accounting claims. We provide assistance regarding potential conflicts of interest and in responding to third-party subpoenas or other requests for client information.
