Browne Jacobson expands its professional indemnity practice with duo hire

30 October 2017
Browne Jacobson has broadened its insurance offering in the South West with the appointment of two specialist professional indemnity lawyers.

Partner Gary Oldroyd and Associate Claire Cornish, who have both come from Bond Dickinson, join the firm’s insurance practice in Exeter.

Gary has over 20 years’ experience in professional negligence litigation, coverage, disciplinary matters and risk management. He experience includes dealing with some of the most high profile and complex claims against the solicitors' profession including claims arising out of the downfall of the ‘After The Event’ (ATE) market, the 2008 lending crisis and cyber fraud. 

Independent legal directory, Chambers & Partners currently ranks Gary in Band 1 in the South West for his work on professional negligence (mainly defendant).

Claire, who qualified in 2000, specialises in the defence of professional negligence claims against solicitors, accountants and surveyors. She also advises insurers in respect of policy coverage. 

Jonathan Newbold, partner and head of the Financial & Professional Risk team at Browne Jacobson commented on the appointments: 

“We are delighted that two well-respected and experienced lawyers within the professional indemnity market have decided to join our growing team. Gary and Claire bring with them an abundance of experience, particularly in solicitors’ professional negligence claims and coverage. Their appointment will further enhance our offer to insurers and increase our national coverage.” 

Gary Oldroyd added:

“I am delighted to join a firm that has such an excellent reputation within the insurance sector and who demonstrate such a strong commitment to delivering exceptional service to their clients.

“Browne Jacobson’s financial and professional risk team is known for their ability to offer pragmatic and commercial solutions to a variety of claims so I am really looking forward to extending this offering to their clients in the South West region.”
