Can I sue my attorney for legal malpractice?

Additional Information:

He was supposed to set up an equal ownership partnership agreement for my small business in Needham.  My business partner and I are in the process of selling the company but it as it turns out I will receive less than 50% of the proceeds.  Does it sound like I have a legal malpractice case?

ATTORNEY ANSWER:

Whether you have a claim against the attorney depends upon the scope of his services.    If the attorney made it clear that he was representing the corporation to be formed and not the individual partners, there would likely be no claim.  However,  if the attorney did not make the scope of his representation that specific,   you may very well have a claim.
