Browne Jacobson bolsters London professional indemnity offering with new partner appointment

11 December 2017

National law firm Browne Jacobson has appointed professional indemnity specialist Ed Anderson as a partner in its expanding financial and professional risk (FPR) practice.

Ed joins from the London office of Beale & Co where he was a partner and led the Legal and Financial Lines group. He is vastly experienced in defending complex claims against professionals, including solicitors, barristers, accountants, surveyors, actuaries and IFA's. In addition, he has considerable expertise in acting for insurers and syndicates in large coverage disputes across all classes of business.

Recommended by Legal 500 and rated as a ‘leading individual’ by Chambers UK, Ed first joined Browne Jacobson back in 2001 before leaving for Beale & Co in 2008.

Based at the firm’s Bevis Marks offices, Ed will further strengthen the firm’s 34 strong national financial and professional risk group which has already seen the arrivals this year of partners Francis Mackie and Colin Peck and associate Rhys Davies in London and partner Gary Oldroyd and associate Claire Cornish in Exeter.

Commenting on his appointment, Senior Partner and Head of Business and Professional Risk, Derek Bambury, said:

“The firm is pushing on with its strategy for growth across its key sectors, including insurance and professional services and we are delighted to welcome Ed back to Browne Jacobson. He is a great addition to the team and we look forward to having him on board again.

Ed’s extensive knowledge of the insurance sector, particularly the London Market, combined with his expertise in acting on some of the most high profile cases seen in the UK from Hillsborough and the miners’ litigation through to large scale commercial fraud spanning the commercial property, technology, charity and media & entertainment sectors will be a significant asset to our team.”


Partner Ed Anderson, added:

“I am delighted to have the opportunity to return to Browne Jacobson and to a firm with such a strong and broad insurer focus. The firm has grown significantly since I was last here, but what hasn’t changed is its first class reputation in this area, and with the experience and expertise I bring, I hope to make a valuable contribution in helping to further develop this area of the firm’s business”
