The Hartford Financial Services Group Inc. filed a lawsuit this week that includes a lengthy, detailed complaint against its competitor New York-based Arch Insurance Group Inc., and its Bermuda-based parent Arch Capital Group Ltd., accusing Arch of stealing trade secrets in addition to many of its underwriters.
