Pegged “lawyer’s lawyers,” our team is experienced in a wide range of professional representations on matters often affecting a client’s livelihood, reputation, license or right to practice.
Our civil litigation prowess extends to professional representations: our firm has a significant practice representing not just lawyers but accountants, physicians and other licensed professionals accused of professional misconduct; politicians; police officers; and other members of the Federal and State Judicial system. We frequently represent professionals required to respond to allegations of misconduct, including allegations brought by adversaries during pending litigation, by dissatisfied clients, and by regulators in proceedings before administrative bodies or disciplinary committees.
We have represented several nationally prominent law firms in breach of fiduciary duty and malpractice cases and also have represented individual lawyers in connection with the dissolution of their firms. We regularly represent lawyers and other prominent individuals who are embroiled in government investigations or are the target of enforcement proceedings by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, the United States Department of Justice, and state regulatory agencies. We have successfully represented physicians of international prominence in their areas of specialization in maintaining their licenses before medical review and licensing boards in the aftermath of governmental investigations and indictments.
Partners of the firm have written extensively in the area of ethics and often are consulted on professional responsibiity issues. We have also been hired to provide expert testimony in court proceedings regarding such issues. The firm’s lawyers have served as members and chairs of bar committees and task forces focused on professional responsibility, ethics, and the judiciary.
