Simply put, contracts are designed so that all parties involved are held to a set of mutually agreed upon rules. Lawyers are hired to make sure the contract is drafted to reflect these contingencies. If the contract is improperly drafted, or fails to include what should have been included, there may be a breach in professional standards for which you are entitled damages. The negligent lawyers that allowed this to happen could be guilty of legal malpractice.
Our New York contractual malpractice attorneys have represented plaintiffs who were unfortunately exposed to negative financial consequences which they believed they were protected from.

How Does contract malpractice occur?
Our firm's investigation into contractual malpractice claim include reviewing what a client's original goals were and how the contract did not benefit or protect them. Legal malpractice can arise from:
- Poor drafting
- Not being aware of current laws
- Not having correct strategies
- Not understanding the client's goals
- Conflicts of interest
If you hired legal counsel to scan a contract for these issues, the attorney should be held responsible for not properly performing the job they were tasked with.
