Indiana Legal Malpractice Case Addresses The Issue of Equitable Subrogation
Yesterday, the New York Legal Malpractice Blog had an interesting post about a decision from the Court of Appeals of Indiana called Querrey & Harrow Ltd., et al.v. Transcontinental Insurance Co. which addresses the question, "can an excess insurer bring a legal malpractice action against an insureds attorneys?" The decision addresses issues of equitable subrogation and attorney-client privilege (to name a few), looking at the law in Indiana and other jurisdictions (including Illinois). It is definitely a case legal malpractice lawyers should take the few minutes to read.
