Legal Malpractice in Business Dispute Cases
egal malpractice in matters involving business disputes can be very costly. You may receive a less than satisfactory verdict or settlement in a contract dispute. You may lose out in a potentially lucrative business deal. In some cases, legal malpractice caused or law caused you very large liabilities resulting in you being on the losing end of a lawsuit.
Businesses and investors who have suffered real financial losses due to legal malpractice can seek to recover damages from the attorney who failed to meet the standard of care and the ethical and performance standards expected. But unlike many other types of disputes where the facts are clear, there are many gray areas when it comes to legal malpractice.
At Stewart & DeChant, we are experienced legal malpractice attorneys with a record of success in this challenging area of the law. We have the knowledge and resources needed to pursue these cases and litigate aggressively at all stages of the legal process.
Contact us for a free consultation about a legal malpractice case involving a business dispute or other matter.
You need to act immediately because:
You only have one year to file suit from the latest of the following:
- The date of negligence
- The date you were last represented
- The date a reasonable person should have investigated whether malpractice occurred
Generally speaking, our firm does not handle legal malpractice cases where the value of the loss is less than $100,000. That is true because the cost alone to pursue these cases generally prohibits them from being pursued when the loss is less.
