NOTICE LIMITED LIABILITY STATUS
Knuteson, Hinkston and Quinn, S.C. was formed as a limited liability service corporation. Only licensed professionals may use the "S.C." or service corporation designation. The Wisconsin Supreme Court requires law firms that operate as service corporations, or as a limited liability company or a limited liabilty partnership, advise clients and prospective clients that as a result of changes in the service corporation statutes (which also applies to law firms operating as limited liabilty companies or limited liability partnerships), vicarious liability for shareholders, member or partners of law firm has been eliminated. This means that in the event of an error, the law firm and its insurer may be liable, as may the attorneys who worked on or directly supervised the matter, but not other attorneys who did not work on or directly supervise the matter.
The Supreme Court also requires law firm service corporations, limited liabilty companies and limited liability partnerships, to register annually with the State Bar of Wisconsin and to carry certain minimum liability insurance coverage. Our liability insurance is well in excess of the minimum required for firms of our size.
