Larry Baill is a founding partner of Yost & Baill. Larry’s subrogation practice dates back to the early 1980s, and has included everything from property and casualty subrogation to motor vehicle, fire, health insurance and workers compensation subrogation. He has been involved in many high profile subrogation cases around the country. He is particularly adept at analyzing and planning a strategy for handling complex losses. Larry’s practice is primarily focused on subrogation in Minnesota and the Upper Midwest, but has expanded to include subrogation litigation throughout the United States, in state and federal court and including all manner of appeals. Larry is one of the few lawyers in the United States who can honestly and proudly claim to have dedicated his practice to subrogation for the last 35 years.

Along with his brother Jeff, Larry co-founded the National Association of Subrogation Professionals. Larry served on NASP’s first board of directors, volunteered his time for three years as editor of NASP’s official publication, Subrogator, and has been a frequent lecturer and conference attendee. He was among the first attorneys to be awarded NASP’s Certified Subrogation Recovery Professional designation, which involved passing a comprehensive examination on a variety of subrogation related topics. Larry is a two-time recipient of NASP’s President’s Award, which acknowledge his service to NASP and the subrogation industry. He has also been recognized as a Super Lawyer by Minneapolis St. Paul Magazine, Law & Politics Magazine and Twin Cities Business.

In his spare time, Larry enjoys playing tennis and basketball, traveling with his family, and taking amazing photographs of the world and its people.
