Bad things can happen to a law firm that are not malpractice. If not addressed promptly could possibly end or damage the reputation of a firm or one of its attorneys. Greenwich Crisis Coverage may help to address these issues. Even though the Greenwich malpractice coverage is duty to defend, the Crisis Event coverage is reimbursement. The actual coverage provided is in the Extensions of Coverage policy section. Notice of a Crisis Event claims notification is also a Notice of Potential Malpractice Claim. Not all insurers provide a similar coverage.
