Through tough times law firms stick together and work things out. But when things go bad in a law firm between attorneys, they can really go bad. Once communication breaks down it leads to more drastic action. Attorneys suddenly find law office locks changed, access to client files restricted, and the access to computer systems denied. Or one attorney moves out over the weekend without notifying the other attorneys in the firm taking ‘their’ client files with them.
As disputes escalate, the attorneys start alleging malpractice against each other. There is no malpractice coverage for this.
The typical exclusion for this is the type found in the current Everest Insurance Company Attorney Malpractice Policy:
“J. INSURED V. INSURED
brought by or on behalf of an Insured against another Insured unless such Claim arises out of Professional Services by an Insured to such other Insured as a client of the Named Insured.”
