Accounting Malpractice Defense

Overview

Smith Haughey’s accounting malpractice defense group works closely with accountants on all facets of risk management and litigation defense.  With extensive knowledge regarding Michigan law and regulations governing the accounting profession, our team is uniquely positioned to minimize accountants’ risk on the front end and vigorously defend lawsuits against accountants where such disputes do occur. 

 

When litigation does occur Smith Haughey’s lawyers, all of whom are familiar with the nuances of the Michigan Accountant Liability Act, are in a unique position to provide a targeted, aggressive defense. We are not a “run of the mill” defense firm. We focus on the complex and distinct issues with which accountants facing professional liability suits are confronted. Our depth of trial experience and subject-matter knowledge results in our services being highly sought after by accountants throughout Michigan.

If you are an accountant or firm with questions about how to reduce your liability exposure or have been the subject of a claim or lawsuit, feel free to contact any of the members of Smith Haughey’s accountant malpractice team.

Experience

Smith Haughey attorneys are regularly called upon to assist accountants in risk consulting and engagement letter formation in order to reduce the likelihood of exposure to professional liability claims. We also assist accountants in responding to subpoenas for documents, depositions, and trial testimony, and analyze confidentiality issues related to the accountant-client relationship.
