We offer a range of services to professional and accounting organizations, such as defending claims at trial, handling regulatory investigations, and consulting on liability reform proposals. We represent professional organizations and their members in lawsuits, regulatory investigations, transactions and legislative matters. We also regularly represent leading accounting firms, major consulting firms, and numerous national and international law firms. In fact, we have tried several matters to successful conclusion and have prevailed at the motion stage in numerous cases on behalf of professional firms.


Our lawyers have handled many of the highest profile cases involving the accounting profession in recent years. For example, we represented Arthur Andersen in the Waste Management case, which involved the most aggressive investigation of a major accounting firm by the Securities and Exchange Commission in more than 20 years. We also served as litigation counsel in Andersen's obstruction of justice trial in Houston involving Enron. On behalf of Ernst & Young, we successfully tried the JWP case in New York, obtained summary judgment against a class of IKON shareholders in Philadelphia, and secured a dismissal of the largest claim filed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation since the S&L crisis. We currently represent accounting firm defendants in a host of other important cases, including Cendant (Ernst & Young), Keystone Bank (Grant Thornton), Charter Communications (Arthur Andersen) and Tri Valley Growers (Deloitte & Touche).
