In the February Insurance Law Update, Partner Jan A. Larson and Associate Jennifer S. Senior examine a Ninth Circuit case regarding the relatedness of professional liability claims.  Titled “9th Circuit Considers ‘Relatedness’ of Professional Liability Claims,” the Update explores the case of Liberty Insurance Underwriters, Inc. v. Davies Lemmis Raphaely Law Corp., which involves potential insurance coverage for seven underlying lawsuits that involve 23 separate real estate transactions spanning six years.  The court’s decision will provide much needed guidance as to the amount of coverage available where policyholders face multiple claims involving similar subject matter.
