Professional Liability and Negligence

Self-regulated professionals, including lawyers, accountants, engineers, architects, pharmacists, optometrists, veterinarians and insurance adjusters are subject to professional standards set by regulation or by common law standards of professional conduct and competence.


Failure or alleged failure to adhere to such standards can result in disciplinary proceedings by the profession’s governing body, or in a civil action for negligence seeking damages. In either case, the consequences for a professional can be devastating and strong advocacy is required to manage the outcome.


Our lawyers represent clients in these professions in both disciplinary proceedings and in defending civil actions brought against them.
