Based in the firm’s London head office, Fouquet joined Charles Taylor in 2014 having gained experience in handling liability claims within a law firm. At Charles Taylor, she developed an expertise in cyber claims and since 2019 has held the role of the firm’s global head of cyber. 

Meanwhile, La Stella has been with Charles Taylor for over 10 years and has experience in a range of specialty lines claims, and products liability/recall claims, and insurance/reinsurance audit. During his career with Charles Taylor, he has been based in Miami, London, and Rome where he opened Charles Taylor Adjusting’s first Italian office. He recently relocated to Barcelona to open and lead the latest location in the firm’s geographical expansion.   

In a statement, the firm said that its specialty lines practice “offers a unique proposition to the market bringing together financial institutions and commercial crime, professional indemnity, directors and officers, cyber, trade credit and political risks, specie and fine art, and contingency and entertainment specialisms.

“With the launch of specialty lines, we bring together selected class-leading products under the overall direction and leadership of Laetitia Fouquet and Nicholas La Stella,” said Andy Rice, managing director, property, casualty, technical, and special risks at Charles Taylor. “Laetitia and Nicholas are recognised leaders in their respective fields and are well placed to take the business forward and promote the availability of these services to our clients across the globe.”
