    Closed Captioned. In a matter of months, the word "coronavirus" became a household term. Without a doubt, the legal and insurance markets will feel the impact of the virus for years to come. This can already be seen by the flood of coverage lawsuits against insurance carriers for denials of business interruption claims, a number of lawsuits against financial institutions for disparate treatment of businesses in connection with PPP funds, and various employment lawsuits.

    However, the impact of COVID-19 on future legal malpractice claims remains to be seen. Although there have not been many, if any, malpractice claims filed directly tied to coronavirus yet, a review of longitudinal studies of claims history yields good information on the source and timing of future claims.

    Join Melissa Lessell of Deutsch Kerrigan in New Orleans and Eileen Garczynski of Ames & Gough in McLean, VA, as they discuss the future landscape of legal malpractice claims. Topics to be discussed include:

    • What can be learned from past legal malpractice claims studies and trends, and what lessons we can apply when predicting future claims
    • The areas of practice and types of errors most susceptible to legal malpractice claims in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic
    • Coronavirus-specific legislation that may trigger future legal malpractice claims
