Liability and disciplinary cases against lawyers, solicitors and civil-law notaries
Lawyers can be challenged, retrospectively, by clients who are disappointed in the outcome of a court case or regret what proves to have been an unfortunate transaction.
Both lawyers and civil-law notaries can find themselves confronted with clients who claim, at a later date, that the contract or deed does not reflect their intentions or that background investigations were inadequate.
We support such practitioners in both disciplinary and civil cases. We are familiar with the different roles, from the strictly partial to the strictly neutral, and the various disciplinary tribunals. We are a strong presence in discussions about the extent of loss, cause and attribution. We are fully conscious of the necessity for discretion, both internal and external.
