Employment Law and Insurance Defense

I made a prediction some years ago - long before I had a blog on which to note such things - that the rise of employment practices liability insurance (commonly known as EPLI), which covers employment related claims, would eventually transform the market for employment law services, moving it further away from a traditional corporate law firm specialty and closer to an insurance defense type specialty. It was not much of a prediction, and barely required an educated guess, but this article seems to record that this has in fact come to pass.
