Fenchurch Law opens Leeds office

Insurance firm Fenchurch Law has opened a new office in Leeds to bolster its presence in the North of England.

Senior associate Daniel Robin will lead the new Leeds office, which is being opened to improve access to the law firm’s claims and wordings disputes support across a range of business classes for insurance brokers in this part of the country.

The expansion coincides with Fenchurch Law’s launch of a new dedicated claims advocacy service for brokers.

Fenchurch Advocacy Services will provide brokers and their clients with access to experienced and qualified professional support, advice and assistance on claims-related issues for a fixed monthly fee. The service complements the firm’s legal services in claims and wordings disputes.

Launched in response to a growing demand from brokers for broader claims support, Fenchurch Advocacy Services will enable regional and smaller UK brokers to access the high quality, specialist claims advocacy that larger and national brokers already provide their clients.  

Phil Taylor, who has joined Fenchurch Law after 15 years as regional claims director at Jelf (now Marsh Commercial), will lead the new service.

David Pryce, managing partner of Fenchurch Law, said: “The launch of our advocacy service builds on the valuable legal support we offer brokers and their clients in claims disputes. In attracting Phil to the team, we can now offer brokers strong, multidisciplinary claims support covering legal and non-legal issues.”

“Many brokers are unable to access the wider claims services that the larger national brokers deliver to their clients. As a firm our purpose is to help level the playing field between policyholders and their insurers, and the launch of Fenchurch Advocacy Services is an important milestone in that journey.”
