Professional Services

It is a professional’s job to know their business and to run it the right way.

Part of being a consummate professional, of knowing how to run a business the right way, is knowing when to seek expert assistance, including legal assistance. Even lawyers and law firms can find themselves in need of legal assistance, and we’re proud that some of the biggest and most notable firms trust Carrington Coleman for matters like legal malpractice actions, sanctions hearings, and disqualifications. We also provide legal services to professionals of all types that allow them to make the most of their own hard work in building their businesses and to protect the reputations they have worked so hard to develop.

Whether helping to build and grow a business or to protect it in litigation, we have the expertise that can make a tremendous difference for our clients. Drafting partnership agreements or interpreting or amending them, dealing with ownership disputes when they arise, handling employment litigation or wrongful terminations, negotiating severance deals—we can guide our clients through. And when intense pressure is on—whether it be legal or medical malpractice claims, errors and omissions, or officer and director claims—we offer our clients the best possible protection.

We strive to be the legal partner that allows our clients to stay focused on what they do best. Our extensive experience includes work with professionals in the following fields:

  • Lawyers and law firms
  • Doctors and hospitals
  • Insurance brokers
  • Business executives
  • Accountants

Our integrity and expertise show in the results we have achieved for our clients. Here are just a few of our successes:

  • Obtained summary judgment in bankruptcy court (affirmed on appeal to the district court) on behalf of a large international law firm in a case involving alleged malpractice in connection with out-of-court restructuring negotiations and bankruptcy. The damages sought by plaintiffs were in excess of $54 million.
  • Obtained a take-nothing jury verdict (which was affirmed on appeal) in favor of a large Texas firm in a case involving alleged malpractice, conversion, breach of fiduciary duty, and fraud arising out of a contingency fee case against an area car dealership. The jury not only found for the defendant firm on the malpractice claims, but also found that the attorneys’ fees sought by the defendant firm were fair and reasonable.
  • Obtained dismissal for the chairman of the board of a national hospital organization in a medical malpractice case. The jury later awarded over $22 million against the remaining defendant.

In these cases and many more, our attorneys have made Carrington Coleman a recognized authority in the fields that matter to our clients.
