Is there a duty to disclose to client that co-counsel has committed a significant error?

What should you do when you are co-counsel on a case or in a deal, and you become aware that the other lawyer has made an error?  A new ethics opinion from the New York State Bar Association says that if you reasonably believe that your co-counsel has committed a significant error or omission that may give rise to a malpractice claim, you must disclose the information to the client.  The Law For Lawyers Today has more information here.
