Insurance law firm DAC Beachcroft has announced that a five partner-led team has joined its Glasgow office from rival firm BLM Scotland.
New partners Louise Gallagher, Gillian Rushbury, Rachel Rough, Iain Buchanan, and Jamie Varney completed their moves this week.
In a statement, the law firm said that the appointments will strengthen its national claims solutions business.
“Our strategic hire of a market leading team from BLM Scotland is highly significant as we continue to grow our claims solutions business,” said Craig Dickson, chief executive officer of DAC Beachcroft Claims Solutions. “The movement of talent within the Scottish insurance legal market has been impacted by consolidation in recent years. However, by attracting such a highly regarded team, we make a major statement to the market and reinforce our ability to service the ‘everything, everywhere’ demand which is increasingly being seen from insurance clients.”
“The team’s arrival further strengthens our position as a market leader when it comes to the handling of catastrophic injury claims and enables us to continue creating sustainable value for the clients we serve.”
