Browne Jacobson attracts two key hires to its London insurance practice

6 February 2017

Browne Jacobson continues to widen its insurance offering in the City with two new significant partner appointments.

London and Lloyd’s market insurance specialists, Colin Peck and Francis Mackie, join the national firm’s London office from Weightmans.

The two will join Browne Jacobson’s insurance/reinsurance team in London, whose client portfolio includes major insurers, Lloyd's syndicates and brokers, managing general agents, third party administrators, professional services firms and policyholders.

Colin Peck and Francis Mackie

For over 25 years, Colin has advised on insurance and reinsurance policy coverage and related disputes, litigation, arbitration and mediation, focused on the London and Lloyd's markets. He advises on reinsurance, property damage, engineering/machinery breakdown, Contractors All-Risks (CAR)/Erection All-Risks (EAR)/Delay in Start-Up (DSU), High Net Worth, specie and liability policies. He has considerable experience acting for clients on large scale industrial property damage/engineering and business interruption claims, often multi-jurisdictional, and is experienced in conducting arbitration, litigation and/or mediation both in London and internationally.

Francis has over 35 years’ experience in the London insurance and reinsurance market. He is well known for his expertise in the London market and international arbitration arena. His experience covers a wide range of insurance and reinsurance sectors, with particular experience in energy, professional indemnity, political risks/contract frustration, commercial property, financial institutions/Directors & Officers (D&O), pharmaceutical/product liability, contingency risks, binding authorities, and a range of reinsurances.

Legal 500 describe Francis as "a central figure in the field of insurance and reinsurance disputes" and he is noted as "an extremely well-established figure on the insurance and reinsurance landscape” in legal directory Chambers & Partners. Colin is described as having “notable experience handling large-scale industrial property damage and business interruption claims”, (Legal 500) and “undertakes a wide range of insurance disputes work both at home and abroad, including property damage and business interruption claims, as well as D&O and liability in casualty claims". Impressed clients say that he is "a very sound lawyer" who "did an excellent job of identifying the issues and providing a strategy”, (Chambers & Partners).  Jonathan Newbold, partner at Browne Jacobson commented on the appointments:

“We continue to see a significant increase in instructions from the London insurance market so we are delighted that both Colin and Francis will be joining us.

They bring with them a wealth of specialist experience which will be a real asset to the team and our clients, and further strengthen our already strong presence in the City.

These appointments further reflect our ability to attract high calibre insurance lawyers, who will enhance our London Market capability and the services we can offer to our valued clients.”
