Over the last 25 years, the courts have exploded with claims against professionals in all disciplines for negligence or “malpractice”. While doctors were the initial targets of this assault, other professionals, including attorneys, bankers, real estate professionals, architects and engineers have also experienced a dramatic increase in claims for professional negligence. This highly publicized “malpractice crisis” has had a profound effect on the way professionals practice and has mandated a close and effective working relationship between professionals and the attorneys they depend upon for guidance and defense.
The attorneys at Bryce Downey & Lenkov LLC have been in the forefront of the defense of professional negligence claims since the onset of the crisis. Our attorneys have represented professionals in numerous specialties and have achieved numerous victories in both the trial and appellate courts and before licensing and regulatory agencies.
Our extensive business practice area facilitates our defense of professionals. Geoff Bryce holds advanced degrees in taxation, providing essential expertise in cases involving complex financial issues. Other attorneys have comparable backgrounds and training in other areas. Through our history and the background of our attorneys, we are qualified to represent the business professionals in their time of crisis.
The successful defense of a professional negligence claim requires more than technical expertise. Critical to the successful defense of such claims is a close working relationship with the professional client, an appreciation of the stigma and insult frequently experienced by professionals who are accused of violating the standards of their profession, and a genuine resolve to aggressively defend the reputation of the professional client. At Bryce Downey & Lenkov LLC, we take great pride in the results we have obtained for our professional clients in this area of the law.
