Christopher Bannon Obtains Summary Judgment for Legal Malpractice Liability Insurer


Litigation attorney Christopher Bannon recently obtained summary judgment in favor of a professional liability insurer in a dispute involving lawyers’ malpractice insurance coverage.  Two lawyers sought a ruling that the insurer must pay for their defense in a lawsuit filed against them by their former law partners, who accused them of misappropriating trust funds and fees.  In ruling in our client’s favor, the Illinois state court judge held that the insurer was not required to defend, or pay for any judgment, in connection with the former partners’ suit for fraud, conversion, breach of fiduciary duties, and accounting.
