MIAMI, FL– June 22, 2021- Bast Amron Special Counsel Brian Tannebaum weighed in on the “Arch Insurance Co. vs. Kubicki Draper” case in a recent article by the Daily Business Review, “I Worry About the Slippery Slope’: New Florida Ruling Allows 3rd Parties to Sue Lawyers for Malpractice.”
“What the Supreme Court focused on was how the insurance company had a duty to defend their insured. That is where the ability to sue for malpractice came from,” said legal ethics expert Brian Tannebaum of Bast Amron in Miami, who is not involved in the case.
“My concern is you may have other corporate entities who might say, ‘Lets see what the Supreme Court would have to say, since we are not an insurance company, but we are paying a fee because we have a duty to defend this person.’ So I worry about the slippery slope. Where does this end? I can see other entities coming forward at some point, seeing if this situation would apply to them.”
