Koning Rubarts represents lawyers, accountants and other professionals accused of malpractice, breaches of fiduciary duty, disciplinary violations or other misconduct.  We offer experienced, aggressive and discreet representation in professional liability cases, and fully appreciate the heavy responsibility of defending the reputations and livelihoods of our professional colleagues. 

Our reputation for excellence in this area is widely recognized.  Paul Koning has been listed repeatedly as one of the nation’s best legal malpractice lawyers in “The Best Lawyers in America” (Woodward/White, Inc., 2007 to present). In October 2007, he was singled out by Texas Lawyer (ALM Media) as one of the top five legal malpractice lawyers in Texas, based on an eight month study published as the Go-To Guide.  Mr. Koning was also featured in the 2002 Texas Lawyer survey Go-To Lawyers for Lawyers in Trouble:  "[T]heir peers across Texas say these seven are the attorneys they'd go to if they were in malpractice or grievance trouble. [These] are the lawyers whose names came up over and over again." (ALM Media 2002).  He is a member of the Professional Ethics Committee of the State Bar of Texas, a former panel chair of the State Bar of Texas (District Six) Grievance Committee, a former Co-Chair of the ABA Professional Liability Litigation Committee, and a frequent speaker on professional liability topics.  He also serves as outside ethics consultant to a number of law firms and is regularly retained as an expert witness.

The firm’s professional liability practice includes malpractice defense, general ethics consultation and advice, representation in disciplinary proceedings, special counsel regarding disqualification and sanctions motions, expert testimony, and appeals.
