Legal Malpractice

One of our calling cards is our success with claims against law firms. A national leader in this space, Reid Collins attorneys have pursued legal malpractice actions against more than two dozen AmLaw 200 firms, as well as numerous other regional firms.Arising from legal work gone awry in both transactional and litigation matters, we have successfully pursued a wide variety of claims against law firms. Some of the misconduct the defendant law firms are alleged to have committed includes: failure to file claims within the statute of limitations, negligently drafting of multimillion-dollar loan documents, failure to report fraud to a company’s independent directors, engaging in conflicted representations of multiple parties, overbilling of clients in connection with internal investigations, provision of erroneous advice on federal and state securities laws, and provision of negligent tax advice.

In addition to traditional legal malpractice cases, Reid Collins also has pursued claims against law firms for aiding and abetting fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, conspiracy to defraud, negligent misrepresentation, and even aiding and abetting violations of the Alien Tort Statute in one case. Furthermore, we have handled multimillion-dollar claims on behalf of bankruptcy trustees to recover fraudulent and preferential transfers made to law firms prior to bankruptcy.
