State Bar
Forms Captive
LANSING - Recognizing a need to
provide continuing availability of
coverage in a problem-plagued liability
insurance market, the State Bar of
Michigan has approved formation of a
captive insurance company for its 24,000
members.
Creation of the new captive insurance
company (a company formed by a par-
ticular group to write insurance coverage
for the group's members) was authorized
by the State Bar Board of Commissioners
at a special meeting January 30. The ac-
tion followed a year-long feasibility study
by the organization's Professional Liabil-
ity Insurance Committee, chaired by
Lawrence R. Donaldson, a Detroit at-
torney.
Participation in the new liability in-
surance plan will be voluntary for
Michigan law firms and individual at-
torneys.
Donaldson said the captive insurance
company is designed to satisfy two basic
goals:
1. To assure availability of profes-
sional liability insurance coverage for
Michigan lawyers; and
2. To stabilize premiums over the
long run.
State Bar officials project 10 per-
cent of the state's attorneys and law
firms will switch from commercial
insurance carriers to the new captive
insurance program in the first year of
operation.
Our action was prompted by the in-
creasing lack of stability in premium cost
and availability of coverage for our
members,  said Julia Darlow,.State Bar
president. These trends more and more
reflect the cylical nature of the casualty
insurance market everywhere.
