Professional Liability

Legal Malpractice

Our lawyers defend other lawyers against legal malpractice claims and in disciplinary proceedings. We are routinely hired by legal malpractice insurers to defend their insured lawyers, as well as hired directly by other members of the bar, to defend attorneys who practice in all areas of the law, including personal injury, commercial litigation, banking and finance, debt collection, estate planning, intellectual property, bankruptcy, and real estate, to name a few. We offer effective defense in:

  • Legal malpractice and breach of fiduciary duty
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Claims alleging illegal, unethical or fraudulent conduct
  • Liability to non-clients
  • Disciplinary proceedings, investigations, and suspension and disbarment proceedings by the State Bars of Texas, California, Louisiana, Minnesota.

Any law firm of any size can face claims by current or former clients, or internal problems that raise questions of professional and personal liability. Firms rely on Thompson Coe’s discreet and experienced guidance to defend professional reputations and financial solvency.
