Wynne is a Legal Director in the Insurance and Reinsurance disputes team in the London office and a founding member of the firm’s cross-disciplinary Climate Change and Resilience practice group.

Wynne is a recognised thought leader on climate liability risk and the insurance industry response to the challenge of climate change and other emerging planetary boundary risks. She was lead author of the Insurance Development Forum’s report on "Technology and the protection gap" and Clyde & Co’s series of reports on Climate Change Liability Risk and Biodiversity Liability Risk and co-author of the Geneva Association’s flagship report on Climate Litigation.
In her climate change consultancy work, Wynne advises insurers and companies in other industries (shipping, aviation, trade and commodities, natural resources) on climate liability risk exposures, and arranges bespoke seminars and workshops on climate-related liability risks to businesses, directors and officers, including in line with the Bank of England’s CBES (Climate Biennial Exploratory Scenario).
