1 September 2020

Fenchurch Law, the UK’s leading firm of solicitors specialising exclusively in representing policyholders in insurance coverage disputes, is delighted to announce its further expansion with the opening of a new office in Leeds from 1 September 2020, which will provide improved access to policyholders in the North of England, and their insurance brokers.

Founded in 2010, Fenchurch Law was created to allow policyholders access to specialist and high quality insurance advice that insurers have received for decades.

Fenchurch Law is now the largest specialist team of solicitors in the UK dedicated to serving the needs of policyholders. We focus exclusively on representing policyholders in insurance coverage disputes, specialising in high value and complex disputes.

The firm comprises five main practice areas, each of them partner-led by lawyers with a reputation for innovation and excellent client care:

·         Professional Risks

·         Financial & Commercial Risks

·         Construction Risks

·         Property Risks, and

·         Products & Environmental Risks

Whilst Fenchurch Law has always acted for policyholders across the UK, as well as internationally, we have recognised an increasing demand among policyholders based in the North of England to have access to solicitors who are based closer to them. Our Leeds office has been launched in response to that demand.

David Pryce, Fenchurch Law’s Managing Partner is excited about the next stage of the firm’s expansion:

“For some time we’ve recognised not only that policyholders outside London often like to be able to instruct solicitors who are based closer to them, but also that there is a great pool of talented insurance disputes solicitors who are based outside the City. The launch of our Leeds office is the first step in helping to connect policyholders in the regions with solicitors who are not only based near them, but are genuine insurance disputes specialists with deep insurance market knowledge and experience”.

The Leeds Office will be headed up by Senior Associate, Daniel Robin. Dan has wide ranging experience of the insurance market, having previously worked as a panel solicitor for insurers, as a broker, and as a claims handler for insurers. He now uses his knowledge of how insurers operate to help policyholders to achieve the best outcomes from their insurance disputes. Dan has a particular focus on professional liability, property and financial lines risks.

Working alongside Dan is Phil Taylor, Insurance Consultant. Phil joined Fenchurch Law after 15 years in Broking as Regional Claims Director dealing with a wide portfolio of Clients, major and complex losses, and coverage disputes on first and third party claims. Prior to Broking, Phil’s background was Liability Loss Adjusting specialising in EL, PL, Products and Professional Indemnity claims. Phil has 35 years of experience in the insurance industry, is ACII qualified, and holds Chartered Status with the CII.
