For Portland businesses, a lost case is not a lost cause

Business owners and individuals in the Portland area and throughout the rest of Oregon rely on their lawyers to protect their rights and interests. Sometimes, this means the lawyer will represent the business owner in a dispute or important negotiation. These matters are often critical to the life of a business and, in some cases, can be the difference between success and growth and economic hardship or even failure.

While not even the best lawyers can guarantee that things will always go as hoped for, sometimes, it will become quite apparent that the lawyer who represented the business was just not up to the task. There are, after all, a lot of details skilled legal professionals must manage in a dispute. Missing these details can tank an otherwise good case.

For instance, a lawyer may miss a key deadline that cannot be extended or overlooked. In other cases, a lawyer may just not understand how the law should apply to a case, while in other cases, they may make poor strategic decisions during litigation that do not meet the minimum standards of professional legal practice.

With respect to negotiations, overlooking important points, like what the tax consequences will be to the client, can prove costly. Unfortunately, there are also some lawyers who may act in an unethical or dishonest way that winds up hurting the business owner.

Our law office believes that a Portland business should not have to shoulder the burden for their lawyer's mistake. The attorneys at our office will file an appropriate legal malpractice claim to cover legal malpractice and will take the steps necessary to make sure a business owner is made whole.
