We understand that when a professional faces allegations of misconduct, breach of professional standards or negligence, the reputation and personal stakes are high. Our litigators have acted on both sides of these complex disputes. We are experts in both protecting the professional integrity and livelihood of our clients facing allegations of impropriety, and effectively seeking civil recoveries when our clients have been harmed by professional misconduct. While always ready to vigorously litigate these matters, we also work diligently and expeditiously to develop settlement opportunities that will advance our clients’ interests.
We represent directors and officers of companies, lawyers, and other professionals in all manner of forums – the courts, regulatory investigations, securities commission hearings, and law society tribunals. We also regularly appear in court to seek civil remedies to redress breaches of professional and fiduciary obligations.
Our litigators have a wealth of experience spanning multiple disciplines including business, insurance and securities law, and regularly appear in all levels of court. We intimately understand the insurance coverage issues that arise in a professional liability context and how to proactively address them with insurers. This means that the Goodmans Professional Liability group can resolve the complex legal and strategic issues that routinely arise from professional liability cases on a cost-effective basis.
