Pro Global taps two to further build claims expertise


By Kenneth Araullo

Pro Global has announced the appointment of two senior claims technicians, further enhancing its specialist claims team.

Lutty Choudhury, formerly a solicitor with Keoghs LLP for 12 years, joins Pro with an extensive background in insurance litigation. During her tenure at Keoghs, she represented a range of blue-chip clients and self-insureds in the defence of long-tail industrial disease claims. Her expertise also extends to handling cases involving stress, bullying, harassment, carbon-monoxide poisoning, environmental pollution, and housing disrepair claims.

Choudhury's legal career also encompasses previous roles at Haliwells LLP and Hill Dickinson LLP. She initiated her career as a claims handler with Iron Trades Management Services.

Tanya Cross, until recently a partner at Clyde & Co, brings with her over 28 years of experience in defendant insurance litigation for major insurers and corporates. Her specialisation lies in occupational disease litigation.

Cross’ career history also includes her tenure as a partner at Berrymans Lace Mawer. She commenced her legal career with Silverbeck Rymer and Hill Dickinson.

In their newly appointed roles, Choudhury and Cross will assume responsibility for the management of high-value and technically intricate asbestos-disease and other respiratory claims. Additionally, they will serve as crucial reference points, offering technical counsel and guidance to their colleagues within the organisation.

“We are always looking to strengthen our team by attracting new and experienced talent. I am delighted to welcome two individuals of the calibre of Lutty and Tanya to Pro. They are joining to supplement even further the strong technical expertise we have within our Specialist Claims team and I know that we will benefit enormously from their wealth of experience and subject matter expertise they each bring,” Pro head of specialist claims Michael Mackenzie said.

In other recent developments for the advisory firm, Pro MGA, the independent managing general agent incubation division of Pro Global Holdings, has announced the appointment of David Goodley as its new head of compliance.
