In Illinois National Ins. Co. v. AlixPartners, LLP, 2019 WL 939018 (Mich. App. Ct. Feb. 26, 2019), a Michigan appellate court addressed an insured’s obligation to report a claim under a professional liability policy in order to satisfy the policy’s claims made and reported requirements.
Illinois National Insurance Company (“Illinois National”) sued to recoup the payment of an arbitration award on AlixPartners LLP’s (“AlixPartners”) behalf in February 2013. After making the payment, Illinois National asserted that it should not have paid because the claim was not covered under any of the professional liability policies it issued to AlixPartners.
