The measure of the quality of our practice is reflected in the reputation and demands of our clients, some of the world's leading accounting firms and professional consultancies.
The attorneys of our Accounting and Professional Liability Group litigate professional liability matters in state and federal courts and other forums throughout the country on behalf of accountants, lawyers, trustees, insurance brokers, architects and engineers, nonmedical professionals, and a range of consultants.
For 30 years, the firm has represented leading professional firms in complex and high-stakes matters. Our successes encompass virtually every type of case in which accountants and accounting firms can be exposed to liability, including common law fraud and malpractice and securities fraud matters, as well as investigations by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB).
Our litigation experience is not limited to the accounting industry. Lawyers, insurance brokers, architects and engineers, and other professionals and consultants frequently have retained our litigators to defend them when their businesses are at risk and their most important asset—their reputation—is on trial.
In addition to defending major civil lawsuits brought against professional firms, we regularly represent the audit committees of large, publicly traded companies in internal investigations arising under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
