Our Professional Liability group represents accountants, lawyers, and engineers in securities, accounting, regulatory and white-collar cases.
We have handled many of the major financial cases of the last decade and have also represented firms and their individual partners and employees in investigations by the Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board and other federal and state law enforcement and regulatory agencies.
Our litigators are known for their defense of accounting firms, including U.S. and other members of the “Big Four” international networks of professional services firms. In addition, our Insurance Litigation group has extensive experience litigating issues under Errors & Omissions policies.
