With the economy booming, legal work is on the rise. Along with the increased legal work is a proliferation of legal malpractice claims against law firms and their attorneys. Johnson & Bell Shareholder, Victor J. Pioli, who defends law firms and their attorneys in malpractice claims, recently presented the topic, “Legal Malpractice Trends and Other Professional Responsibility Issues” to a leading Chicago area domestic relations law firm. This is the second local law firm Mr. Pioli has provided continuing legal education (CLE) certified presentations to about professional liability issues in recent months. His previous talk to a leading intellectual property law firm this summer focused on ethical considerations regarding client intake issues.
Mr. Pioli is a member of Johnson & Bell’s Business Litigation and Professional Liability practice groups. He concentrates his practice on defending professionals in malpractice matters and has successfully tried several cases to verdict. In addition, he handles a variety of commercial matters, including trial and appellate work on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants in state and federal courts. His client list ranges from large corporations and government entities to individuals. He’s litigated simple contract disputes, complex securities disputes and antitrust matters, to name just a few representative cases.
