Professional Liability

MCB attorneys have represented professionals in both State and Federal courts in diverse matters including design and construction controversies, RICO and fraud investigations, mortgage and financing issues, real estate syndication matters and other areas of business and the law, and, of course, underlying medical personal injury claims.

Professional Liability addresses situations where professionals (including attorneys, accountants, engineers, architects, insurance brokers/agents, and corporate officers and directors) are exposed to liability as a result of errors, negligent acts, or omissions alleged to be committed in the performance of their services.

By its nature, the Professional Liability practice area encompasses unique sensitivities. Not only can an adverse judgment result in material financial harm to the defending person or entity, but reputational damage and impaired future earnings are also at stake.

This is why you need MCB on your side.

WHO WE REPRESENT:

Our clients include nationally recognized law firms, Big Four accounting firms, and high-profile individuals in the engineering, architectural, accounting, legal, and insurance fields.

WHAT WE HANDLE:

MCB’s professional liability attorneys possess in-depth industry knowledge and expertise in the collective professions, enabling them to understand fully the client’s situation and thereby provide an effective and focused legal defense. While we stand ready to defend clients at any time once a claim has been made, the Firm also emphasizes the importance of proactive intervention to avoid litigation in the first place.

Our attorneys:
