In the first post for July on the new ACMA Community Blog, Fellow Lydia Stefanowicz summarizes a March 2017 suit filed against the prominent law firm Quarles & Brady, LLP for damages allegedly arising from a third party closing opinion issued by the firm in a loan closing in Illinois.

In her post, Ms. Stefanowicz opines that, "The case against Quarles & Brady appears weak and is likely to be dismissed ultimately. However the damage is done when the complaint is filed." She then describes four actions that potentially could have prevented the lawsuit.
