Transaction Legal Malpractice
Attorneys are an instrumental part of every major business transaction. Attorneys must attend to all of the details, address contingencies, and provide accurate, timely counsel as to potential risks. When attorneys fail in these duties, clients can face needless exposure and suffer staggering financial losses. In many cases, an attorney’s failure rises to the level of legal malpractice. If you or your business faces the prospect of severe financial loss due to an attorneys’ malpractice, it is important that you talk to a lawyer about your options.
Serving Businesses and Individuals Who Have Suffered Harm due to Transactional Errors
Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, represents individuals and businesses that have suffered extensive financial harm due to legal malpractice. Transactional errors can encompass a wide range of negligent actions, including:
- Making errors in documentation and drafting
- Violations of fiduciary duty
- Failure of due diligence
- Failing to disclose terms and conditions that could harm the client
Simply reaching a poor outcome in a transaction does not necessarily constitute malpractice. Legal malpractice occurs when a lawyer breaches his or her standard of acceptable care. Further, you must be able to prove that you suffered financial harm as a result of this breach.
In any legal malpractice claim, a lawyer’s very reputation is on the line. Even if your former lawyer’s conduct was far below the accepted standard of care, your lawyer will likely expend significant effort attempting to prove otherwise. At GB&W, our law firm will provide tenacious, thorough legal representation on your behalf.
Our law firm handles legal malpractice claims on a contingent fee basis. This arrangement allows us to fully partner with our clients. We have found that our clients, even clients who typically work with lawyers on an hourly basis, appreciate the benefits of this approach.
