Professional Ethics & Risk Management

Clark Hill attorneys counsel and represent many different professionals—including accountants, attorneys, directors, officers and fiduciaries, financial series providers, real estate agents and insurance agents—in pre-suit negotiations and in litigation.

We understand that the outcome of a dispute or trial can have profound ramifications on the professional reputations of the individuals involved, as well as the partnerships, practices and companies for which they work. On behalf of our clients, we obtain defense verdicts, summary judgments, non-suits, dismissals and favorable settlements. Our representation ranges from national firms to sole practitioners.

We have special experience in ethics, risk management and professional responsibility issues facing lawyers. Clark Hill is equipped to conduct risk audits of law firms suggesting methods to reduce the potential of liability exposure. The firm represents attorneys facing grievance procedures, bar admission disputes, disqualification motions, and other issues implicating the Rules of Professional Conduct. Professional responsibility attorneys at Clark Hill are active members of the Association of Professional Responsibility Lawyers and the ABA Center for Professional Responsibility.
