Legal malpractice defense
A quick search shows that Ron Nemirow, Kevin Perez, and Miles Buckingham have had a hand in shaping significant portions of the case law which helps shape legal malpractice actions in Colorado.Attorneys are increasingly finding themselves the targets of civil and administrative actions, not just from clients, but from opponents, and even opposing counsel. Bringing on attorneys who know the law, and who can quickly take control of the case means that you can return your focus to your own clients. When attorneys are sued or grieved, it is an angering, disruptive, and often frightening process. If this happens to you, notify your carrier, ensure that all documents and related materials are preserved, and call us. We work with a number of the largest lawyer’s professional liability insurers in the state, or can also assist you on a private pay basis.
Our attorneys handle bankruptcy, reorganization, and related litigation matters for a wide array of clients. We represent unsecured and secured creditors, landlords, creditors’ committees, and trustees, as well as business and consumer debtors. We can assist you, or your business, through a difficult and confusing time. Contact Nancy Miller at Nemirow Perez to talk about the options, protections, and choices which you have.
Employment law representation
Talking to an attorney with experience in employment law before your business takes an action which can lead to complaints or litigation, will save you money, time, and brain damage in the long run. Our attorneys have experience in guiding companies through the difficult risk management decisions which need to be made to minimize the risk of complaints and litigation. If a complaint is made, we will help you through the processes put in place by organizations such as the EEOC, and the State and Federal civil rights divisions. If the matter has moved to the Courts, our trial experience in State and Federal Courts will help ensure you and your business get their day in court. Call Kevin Perez or the other attorneys at Nemirow Perez P.C. to discuss your employment law concern or case, today.
Homeowners Association defense
Lawsuits and civil rights complaints against owners’ associations in Colorado have become increasingly common. The laws governing associations and their management companies are complex, and detailed, and must be read and applied in harmony with the governing documents for each community. Out-of-date declarations, spotty enforcement, and even tension between neighbors can cause entire communities to become embroiled in litigation. These lawsuits differ from ordinary actions, as the prevailing party often is awarded their attorney fees. In these cases it is important to have an experienced litigator on your side. Miles Buckingham represents a significant number of owners associations across the state in litigation and administrative complaints of all kinds. We will work with your general counsel and your management company to see the association through this difficult time.
