Professional Liability and Discipline
Lewis and Roca lawyers have extensive experience in the defense of a wide variety of professional liability claims. We regularly represent professionals in both disciplinary hearings and litigation and advise our professional clients on best practices to avoid disciplinary investigations and lawsuits.
Lewis and Roca is proud and honored that leading law firms throughout the Southwest look to us for representation. Over the past few years, we have represented law firms with hundreds of lawyers, sole practitioners, and law firms of all sizes in-between.
Our clients have included lawyers who practice across the full range of legal disciplines, including litigation lawyers, real estate lawyers, trust and estate lawyers, securities lawyers, transactional lawyers, tax lawyers, construction lawyers and bankruptcy lawyers. We have successfully defended malpractice claims that have included a broad spectrum of issues, such as negligence, fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, liability to non-clients, infliction of emotional distress, breach of contract and RICO. We also represent lawyers in disciplinary matters pending before the State Bar and are able to tap into the experience of Lewis and Roca lawyers who have served in executive positions with the State Bars of Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico.
Our attorneys also have handled accounting malpractice claims involving all sizes of accounting firms, including some of the largest in the country. We have the experience to assist accountants and accounting firms in claims arising out of audits, preparation of financial statements, tax return preparation and all other areas of accounting practice. Lewis and Roca’s lawyers include certified public accountants whose knowledge we draw on when representing accountants.
Our Professional Liability Practice Group also has the experience to represent architects, contractors, pharmacists, physicians, real estate brokers, securities brokers and many other kinds of professionals. Because Lewis and Roca is a full-service law firm, we are able to capitalize on the depth and breadth of substantive areas of practice throughout the firm and respond to the particular needs of professionals who seek our assistance.
