Professional Liability DefenseBarris, Sott, Denn & Driker has a proven record of success defending claims against lawyers and other professionals. We have handled professional malpractice claims in a variety of contexts, including trustees, accountants, and actuaries.
Perhaps the best indicator of our reputation in legal malpractice defense litigation is the fact that we have represented seven of the largest law firms in Michigan. When our competitors need a lawyer, they call us.
Here are a couple examples where our resources, skill, and tenacity achieved great results in complex cases:
- We represented one of Michigan's largest law firms. We were brought in after a disastrous $22 million jury verdict against the firm, which exceeded the firm's available insurance coverage. We obtained a complete reversal on appeal.
- We were involved in a professional malpractice case centered around claims of conflict of interest and breach of fiduciary duty regarding a merger of non-profit entities and the resulting creation of a new cancer institute. We obtained summary disposition and complete victory for our client, while a co-defendant represented by another firm went to trial.
