EMK provides counsel for hospitals, medical practices, surgical centers, outpatient facilities, physicians, and others in the medical profession. Our vast experience with these claims provides requisite insight to each specific client’s needs and concerns whether the client is an entity or individual person. We understand the extremely sensitive nature of these claims in this highly regulated industry. Extensive experience enables the firm’s attorneys to conduct a vigorous defense on behalf of the client while remaining mindful of the families and practitioners who are involved in the case. It is essential for the medical providers to maintain goodwill and an unabashed reputation despite the claims asserted. As such, we defend these cases both in an effort to prevail and also protect the provider’s reputation within the community.

Agent-Broker Liability/Non-Disclosure Claims
EMK is well positioned to defend the interests of its agent and broker clients in any real estate claim (whether it be by the seller, the buyer, an escrow entity, or even before the Bureau of Real Estate). EMK knows the business of real estate, having attorneys with both legal and real estate practices, and giving EMK a leg up on other firms due to the in-the-trenches experience and training. EMK knows well the importance that a real estate professional places upon their reputation in the industry – a reputation that is often forged over years and decades. The significance of that is not lost on us; indeed, we aggressively defend our clients and their reputations, and pursue a course of action that quickly resolves claims without adverse impact to the client.
Where agents or brokers have clients coming to them as a result of alleged non-disclosure, EMK is there is help. EMK attorneys can also advise and advocate on behalf of agents, brokers and their clients in situations where there has been a failure to properly disclose. As always, we seek first and foremost to protect the interests of our clients, but that is often times served best by pursuing an affirmative action against others who are culpable (whether it be another agent or property owner). Regardless, EMK is able to assist our clients to evaluate the potential exposure and give the advice they need to pass along to their own clients.
