Holman Fenwick Willan has appointed new members to its corporate insurance team, which will be headed by new arrivals Richard Spiller and Ashwani Kochhar in London.
The former Edwards Angell Palmer & Dodge partners have been involved in numerous high-profile and complex matters in the insurance industry in recent years.
Richard Spiller advises on a wide spectrum of non-contentious insurance matters, including corporate and risk transfer transactions, regulation and policy wordings and run-off.
Commenting on the move, Spiller said: “We are excited by the opportunity this move brings, creating one of the largest corporate and regulatory insurance teams in London. The experience and capability of our combined team will provide clients with a considerably stronger international service in all non-contentious work in the sector.”
Paul Wordley, HFW’s head of insurance and reinsurance commented: “We are delighted to welcome this team to the firm. They are lawyers of the highest calibre and will significantly strengthen the service we can provide to clients in the insurance and reinsurance market.”
