Professional Liability

Industries that require professionals to provide advice and counsel are especially susceptible to malpractice-related claims. As such, it is imperative to have an attorney who understands the regulatory landscape of that profession and the venues where these cases are heard. At Yankwitt LLP, our attorneys are experienced at representing individuals and businesses, specifically in the legal and accounting fields, in professional liability claims before the courts, regulatory bodies, and in arbitrations and mediations.

We are especially familiar with the issues with which accounting and law firms and their practitioners are typically confronted and have represented companies, individuals and firms on both sides of accounting and legal malpractice claims.

Our reputation as lawyers ready to take cases to trial frequently encourages our opponents to engage in pre-trial negotiations and offer settlements. If we are brought into a criminal case at the early investigatory stages, we have been successful at persuading the state not to bring charges against our client. Early involvement and careful preparation are essential to a good result.
