Professional malpractice

Since the founding of the firm, Markowitz Herbold has pursued and defended professional malpractice economic loss claims.  

We represent individuals and businesses who have suffered financial losses because their professional advisors and agents have not done their job properly. We represent doctors, dentists, veterinarians, accountants, lawyers, engineers, investment advisors, architects, and other professionals before professional boards and in court when they are accused of causing financial losses or failing to meet professional standards in their industry. We have achieved some significant victories for clients against international accounting firms and large law firms.

When professionals are entrusted with important responsibilities, their clients have the right to expect they will perform according to professional standards. When they don’t, we know how to hold them accountable. 

We have handled professional malpractice matters involving:

  • Accounting malpractice
  • Aider and abettor liability
  • Appraisal malpractice
  • Engineering malpractice
  • Errors and omissions
  • Failure to detect fraud
  • Improper conduct
  • Legal malpractice
  • Negligence
