Attorney Negligence And Business Litigation Malpractice
Perhaps you trusted your lawyer to handle your business’s legal needs professionally and prudently, but your lawyer failed you and improperly handled the matter. If so, you may have a case for legal malpractice.
Our malpractice attorneys can help hold your negligent business attorney accountable for their actions or inactions. At St. Denis & Davey, P.A., we believe in and care about the legal profession and how it is viewed. We know what obligations attorneys have to their clients and can help enforce these through litigation. We are not afraid to sue other lawyers.
Has Your Business Suffered Due To Improper Advice From Your Lawyer?
Business litigation malpractice occurs when a business attorney fails in their fiduciary duty to you and your case. Business litigation attorneys owe their clients a fiduciary duty to act in a manner expected of other attorneys in the profession. They are required to put your interests before their own in handling your case.
Types Of Potential Business Malpractice Cases
In business, there are several different actions or inactions that can be considered attorney negligence and lead to a legal malpractice claim. These include:
- Contract errors and omissions
- Failure to advise clients
- Business attorney incompetence
- Investment errors involving stocks
- Legal advice that breaks employment laws
- Poor guidance on employment laws and safety practices in the workplace
- Business formation errors, resulting in negative tax implications and other issues
- Mishandled partnership disputes
- Giving business and legal advice outside their specialty
If your attorney’s negligence occurred during a lawsuit, you may also have a claim for commercial litigation negligence or malpractice. If you believe that legal malpractice has negatively impacted your business we would like to hear about your case. Our legal malpractice attorneys can review your potential business malpractice claims.
