Lawyers and Law Firms



When attorneys and law firms find themselves in need of legal representation in connection with claims of malpractice or allegations of ethics violations they turn to Sandberg Phoenix. Our experienced team of attorneys counsel and defend the interests of litigation attorneys as well as transactional attorneys.

We value efficiency. Sandberg Phoenix has 130 attorneys who practice in countless areas of law. When representing the interests of attorneys, our in-house expertise allows our professional liability team to quickly and efficiently gain critical familiarity in the area of law practiced by our clients.

Legal malpractice cases are complex both factually and legally. The attorney defending legal malpractice claims must evaluate not only the malpractice claim, but also the underlying lawsuit or transaction. We understand these complexities and we have the experience to efficiently develop effective defense strategies.

Sandberg Phoenix attorneys have a well-earned reputation for trying lawsuits. Our attorneys also have the ability to successfully represent professional liability clients on appeal when necessary. But, we also understand the costs associated with litigation so we make early assessments to identify those cases that are appropriate for early resolution.

Allegations of ethical violations can result in negative action against a client’s law license including disbarment. The ethical rules and advisory opinions explaining them require research skills that differ from traditional legal research. The administrative process triggered by the filing of a complaint against an attorney can be intimidating and confusing. We understand the interpretation of the ethical rules and have the experience to navigate the administrative process.

Our counselling and defense strategies always consider the potential impact on the reputation of our clients. As licensed professionals ourselves, we know what it takes to build a good reputation. We take pride in our reputation and work hard to protect the well-earned reputations of our clients.
