Legal Malpractice Insurance coverage protects attorneys and law firms, and their staff, against claims of professional negligence. Some of these policies cover the cost of having representation by independent counsel when an ethical complaint turns into a lawsuit.
Firms and sole practitioners alike should have Legal Malpractice Insurance. Any lawyer or firm is a target for malpractice suits at any time --- no matter how good the attorney or the firm is. With legal malpractice insurance, you can be assured of both an aggressive defense as soon as any suit might be filed against you, and a massive reduction in the legal fees often associated with such cases.
