Protecting Notaries, Consulting & Other Miscellaneous Professions from Exposure
In addition to accountants, lawyers, agents, brokers and other licensed professionals, KDV’s legal team provides professional liability/errors and omissions counsel to individuals and companies delivering a diverse range of services. Our lawyers recognize the incredible variety of businesses that are not among the traditional professions but are at risk of lawsuits arising from advice provided to customers. From IT consulting companies to human resource department vendors to travel agents and individual notaries, organizations and individuals operating in all sectors of the economy are subject to liability claims arising out of the day-to-day information and services they deliver to their customers.
Experienced Representation in Errors & Omissions Claims
When a business or individual faces a claim alleging their mistake caused a customer to sustain a financial loss, the professional liability attorneys at KDV are well-prepared to handle the matter. Our lawyers employ a comprehensive approach to defending cases involving errors and omissions (E&O)claims. We take the time to learn as much as we can about our clients’ businesses and the industries they operate within. Many industries, especially those that have not been around for a long period of time, may not be governed by any particular set of laws and regulations. When statutory and regulatory standards are not available, our attorneys undertake a careful review of best practices established by industry associations. We also consult with experienced individuals within the industry to gain a full understanding of the nature of the business.
The members of our Professional Liability/Errors and Omissions Practice understand how troublesome and disruptive these types of suits can be for our clients. We listen to our client’s concerns and keep them fully informed at every stage of the process. We provide clients with a clear assessment of their case, evaluating the potential risks and benefits associated with all available courses of action. While our goal is to resolve these matters before they escalate into costly legal battles, our attorneys aggressively defend businesses and individuals against E&O claims in state and federal courts across the nation when necessary. In some instances we recommend private arbitrations to resolve disputes to keep them out of the public limelight. From the initial review of the claim, to trial and appeal, we strive to protect our clients’ reputations and get them back to focusing on their businesses, not ours, as quickly as possible.
In addition to resolving and litigating E&O cases, our legal team works with individuals and organizations to minimize the risk of exposure to these types of liability claims. Our lawyers regularly review clients’ operations and offer guidance and training on risk-management practices to help our clients avoid these high-stakes claims.
