Clark Hill’s professional ethics team works with law firms and other professional service organizations in and out of the courtroom to reduce liability exposure and resolve claims.
Many different professionals, including accountants, attorneys, directors, officers and fiduciaries, architects, engineers, financial service providers, real estate agents, and insurance agents, seek our counsel in professional liability matters during pre-suit negotiations and litigation. Our representation ranges from national firms to solo practitioners.
We have considerable depth and experience in ethics, risk management, and professional responsibility issues facing lawyers. We are well-situated to conduct risk audits of law firms and suggest methods to reduce the potential of liability exposure and improve processes. We represent attorneys facing grievance procedures, bar admission disputes, disqualification motions, and other issues implicating the Rules of Professional Conduct. Many of our attorneys serve as consulting and testifying expert witnesses in litigated matters.
Our professional responsibility attorneys include active members of the ABA Center for Professional Responsibility, state bar ethics committees, and industry groups including the Association of Professional Responsibility Lawyers.
