Law Firm and Attorney Defense

In addition to malpractice claims by clients, law firms and attorneys increasingly face claims asserted by non-clients, particularly in connection with loans, mergers and acquisitions, or other transactions in which the law firm drafted documents or provided legal opinions, and from former partners.  Law firms and individual attorneys have also increasingly been the target of securities fraud claims.  MW specializes in the defense of large and international law firms and their partners, particularly in disputes arising from financial, securities or commercial representations or transactions, legal opinions, and claims made by the estates of bankrupt law firms concerning the movement of partners and unfinished business matters.
