Professional Services Liability Litigation Committee
The Professional Services Liability Litigation Committee focuses on issues unique to litigators who prosecute or defend claims against attorneys, accountants, directors and officers, and other professionals who owe fiduciary duties. If you handle any of these kinds of cases, or would like to learn more about how to handle such claims, please join our group!
The PSLLC is soliciting CLE program proposals for the 2016 ABA Annual Meeting, to be held August 4–9, 2016, in San Francisco. To be selected for inclusion in the slate of programs submitted by the PSLLC, proposals will need to be of "showcase" quality, should feature topics of broad interest to commercial and business litigators, and should focus on emerging issues and topical trends. Please send proposals to our CLE Programming chair, Christopher Harris, using the submittal form. Program proposals should be submitted to the PSLLC by close of business on Thursday, October 29, 2016.
The committee’s bimonthly calls are held at 11 a.m. Central on the first Tuesday of every other month. Our next committee conference call is scheduled for December 1, 2016. Please contact cochair Carey L. Menasco for dial-in information.
We welcome your participation and would appreciate hearing your ideas for articles, practice points, ethics opinions, and legislation affecting professionals. Publications for our semiannual newsletter can be submitted to our newsletter editors, Patricia Gorham and Saleel Sabnis. Content for our website can be directed to our website editor, Jonathan Walsh.
Message from the Chairs
Thank you for visiting the Professional Services Liability Litigation Committee’s homepage. We hope you will bookmark this webpage as your source for timely news, legal updates, and committee activities.
We appreciate the hard work being done by all of our subcommittees, who have an exciting year of benefits lined up for our members. In addition to our semiannual newsletter, roundtables, and Sound Advice pieces, the committee is fast at work completing its 50-State Survey of Accounting and Auditing Liability Issues. Many states are already available on our committee website, and we expect to have all 50 states completed within the next year.
Likewise, The Law of Lawyers’ Liability, our committee’s 50-state survey of legal malpractice issues, is available for purchase at the ABA bookstore.
We thank you for your interest in the Professional Services Liability Litigation Committee and welcome your involvement in both the committee and the ABA. The Section of Litigation is the leading voice for trial lawyers in this country, and we are proud to be a part of it. Please contact us with any ideas or suggestions you may have for how the committee can best serve you and the legal community.
