Members of the firm have been servicing professionals for more than 40 years.The firm provides legal services to a number of professions, including architects and engineers, accountants, land surveyors, insurance professionals and finance professionals.
Singleton Urquhart recognizes that professionals present a unique set of issues for problem solving. Our professional liability practice groups are tailor-made to meet those needs. The individuals of each practice group have extensive experience in assuring that the professionals’ needs are attended to in an effective, expeditious and efficient manner.
Singleton Urquhart has been providing legal representation to accountants and accounting firms, along with many other professions, since its inception.
We believe that, to be effective advocates for professionals, lawyers must understand the particular concerns they face when they are accused of an error, omission, or impropriety. Civil lawsuits affect professionals differently than companies or private citizens. As with disciplinary proceedings, complaints made through the courts involve issues of professional integrity and potentially serious financial consequences. Moreover, some options that are available to a company in similar circumstances are not available to a professional.
An effective advocate for a professional also should have an understanding of the technical subject matter of the claims, the profession’s ethical duties and standards and solid contacts within the profession.
