Offering a Complete Range of Services from Litigation to Business Counseling

LBC&C offers a wide variety of services to design professionals, from litigation defense to business counseling.

Supported by a staff of paralegals and the latest in computer technology, the Firm professionally handles document intensive, complex litigation.

In its representation of individual professionals, the Firm provides a number of services. It performs risk analysis and management services, which have proven effective in reducing claim exposure by identifying and addressing areas of potential conflict before they become actual problems and result in litigation.

The Firm has also partnered with liability insurance companies to afford pre-claim assist services to design professionals. These programs are designed to offer guidance and where possible, resolve potential claims before they become lawsuits.

The Group also evaluates, drafts and negotiates professional service contracts, and offers legal advice on day to day issues that affect the design professional.
