Fenchurch Law has announced that Joanna Grant has been appointed Managing Partner of the firm, with predecessor and founder David Pryce taking on new Senior Partner role, leading the firm’s expansion into Singapore. In addition, Daniel Robin will step into the role of Deputy Managing Partner.

Joanna Grant joined Fenchurch Law as Partner in 2016 and has since led the firm’s expert Construction and Property Risks team, advising clients on some of the most high-profile commercial insurance disputes in the UK. She steps into the role of Managing Partner following the 14-year tenure of founder and predecessor David Pryce. David now takes up the role of Senior Partner, where he will oversee the firm’s global expansion strategy, starting with the opening of its recently-announced Singapore office later this year.

Joining Joanna on the firm’s senior management team is the head of the firm’s Leeds Office Daniel Robin, who becomes Deputy Managing Partner, supporting and overseeing Fenchurch Law’s continued growth strategy in the UK market.

These leadership changes signify an exciting growth milestone for the firm, which has represented clients in some of the most high-profile and complex policy disputes in recent years, including Stonegate Pub Company’s Covid-19 Business Interruption (BI) claim, which remains the highest-value Covid-19-related BI claim to pass through the English courts.

This announcement also follows recent news that the firm has transitioned to an employee-owned business model through the launch of an Employee Ownership Trust (EOT), which saw 60% of its shares awarded to its people.

Fenchurch Law becomes one of the few female-led law firms in the UK.

David Pryce, Senior Partner at Fenchurch Law, commented: “It’s a hugely exciting time for Fenchurch Law, and I’m so proud of what we’ve achieved since our inception in 2010. I’m absolutely delighted that Joanna and Daniel will be leading the firm into its next stage of growth, as we look to expand our footprint even further.”

Joanna Grant, Managing Partner at Fenchurch Law, added: “I’m delighted to be leading the charge for Fenchurch Law in its ongoing mission to level the playing field for policyholders, with a particular focus on complex and high value coverage disputes in the UK.”

Daniel Robin, added: “I’m very proud to be able to support the further growth of Fenchurch Law and give even more policyholders in the UK access to the wealth of expertise we have across the team.”
