CG&P has secured the dismissal of a high exposure legal malpractice claim against a Manhattan law firm and its partners. CG&P’s clients represented a dental practice and its principals in connection with the negotiation of an agreement with a management firm related to the development of a mobile dental practice. The dental practice was later found to have violated Medicaid regulations and was held liable for $15,677,556.61. The liability was based on the dental practice’s association with a principal of the management firm, and it brought a claim against its attorneys (CG&P’s clients), alleging that the attorneys caused the liability by failing to perform due diligence and failing to advise plaintiffs as to Medicaid regulations. CG&P was successful in overcoming a continuous representation argument and having the claim dismissed based on the statute of limitations. The claims against CG&P’s clients were dismissed in their entirety by Justice Golia of the Supreme Court, Queens County. The case was handled by CG&P partner Gary Petropoulos.
