Clyde & Co’s announced today that Ivor Edwards will be joining the London Corporate Insurance team. His appointment brings the number of partners in the team to 10 – supported by a dedicated team of associates – creating the largest corporate insurance practice in London.
"Ivor’s arrival consolidates several years of expansion” commented Andrew Holderness, head of the Corporate Insurance Group. “During this period we have added specialist insurance finance, public company and life insurance expertise to our offering.”
“We now offer a unique proposition for the market – far ahead of that of our competitors. This is a challenging time for the re/insurance markets – whether the issues range from Solvency II, EU competition law and regulatory attention – clients are looking for advisers who really ‘get’ their concerns. We have seen our workload more than double over the last five years and that is down to the breadth of our expertise, the depth of our experience and our ability to provide a complete service for underwriters, brokers, run-off companies and support industries.”
Ivor Edwards commented "In developing my practice area further, the key component for me was to be part of a business that has re/insurance at its core, and that is making an ongoing investment in the sector – both here in London and globally.”
“Clyde & Co is a world leader in re/insurance. The expansion of the team, and their development in emerging markets and the US, are a demonstration of their commitment to the market.”
The Legal 500 commented that Clyde & Co’s Corporate Insurance Group "has the leading transactional insurance practice among the traditional EC3 insurance firms."
Prior to joining Clyde & Co, Ivor was the lead Partner of the Corporate Insurance team at Addleshaw Goddard.
