WE DON'T JUST ANSWER THE QUESTIONS, WE QUESTION THE ANSWERS

Oved & Oved LLP regularly provides guidance, counsel and representation to various professionals and professional associations such as physicians, attorneys, architects, engineers and accountants on all aspects of their professional practices. We take particular pride in serving as counsel to many of our colleagues in the legal industry.

Architects and Engineers Malpractice

Our attorneys are adept in defending and prosecuting claims both for and against architects and engineers relating to professional malpractice. The types of claims include contract disputes, defective work claims, delay and termination claims, liability for errors or omissions and numerous other claims.

In order to effectively reduce litigation costs and expenses, our attorneys provide a thorough analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of a particular claim, along with a comprehensive litigation plan and budget.

Legal Malpractice

Our attorneys represent lawyers in state and federal courts in actions for malpractice, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty and related claims. We have had success in defending corporate claims of malpractice in connection with real estate transactions; business transactions; securities matters; and patent and trademark matters as well as in litigation matters.

The attorneys in our Professional Liability Practice have represented law firms and lawyers seeking counsel or an aggressive defense in their most serious and sensitive matters. The majority of our work is for large law firms, but we also represent regional firms, local firms and individual lawyers. We are proud and appreciative that our peers seek us out to be “lawyers’ lawyers.”

We have extensive experience in the specific issues of importance faced by law firms, no matter what the forum. Our lawyer and law firm representations include not only defending legal malpractice and related litigation, but we also routinely engage in pre-litigation counseling and conduct internal investigations at law firms that prevent the filing of a lawsuit against the firm. We are frequently retained to assist law firm general counsel in evaluating their most complex issues.

We have substantial experience and success in resolving matters in a wide array of substantive practice areas in which professional responsibility claims or other issues can arise. These include:

  • Corporate Advice/Failed Transactions
  • Complex Civil Litigation
  • Regulatory Matters
  • Breaches of Fiduciary Duty
  • Taxation/Tax Shelters
  • Real Estate Issues
  • Trusts and Estates
  • Labor Law/Employment Discrimination
  • Conflicts of Interest
  • UCC and Security Interests
  • Billing Disputes
  • Allegations of Fraud
  • Closely Held Corporations
  • Partnership Dissolution/Firm Labor Disputes
  • Breaches of Confidentiality
  • Criminal Litigation and Investigations
  • Disciplinary Proceedings/Sanctions Litigation

We are uniquely situated to address the most pressing issues facing law firms because we have years of experience in handling these types of matters, and understand the sensitive nature of these claims. We handle all such matters with the utmost confidentiality. Additionally, because claims against law firms typically implicate the “case within the case,” we rely on the subject-matter knowledge and experience of our firm attorneys from other practice areas in order to efficiently and effectively respond to claims against our law firm clients.

In order to effectively reduce litigation costs and expenses, our attorneys provide a thorough analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of a particular claim, along with a comprehensive litigation plan and budget.
