The team is led by Joan D’Ambrosio and Bill Casey, and focuses on insurance coverage and monitoring work. The team includes Christina Terplan, Julie Hawkinson, Jamie Narbaitz, Christina Marshall, Eric Moon and David Jordan who are also to leave the firm. Ms D’Ambrosio’s team is focused on tech errors and omissions and cyber coverage and monitoring work, and Mr Casey’s group focuses on coverage and monitoring for architects, engineers and lawyers. The team had joined the firm in 2008 from Duane Morris.

Wishing well

A spokesperson for the firm said “We wish the team well as they set up an independent law firm and are working amicably and constructively with them to achieve as smooth a transition as possible for all parties.” Discussing its US insurance coverage practice, the spokesperson explained that the team was  “one of the largest in the country, with 70 partners, 250 legal professional and 450 people across ten offices. The US practice has experienced compound annual growth of over 20 percent in the past ten years and is now the firm’s largest region outside the UK, accounting for 23 percent of firm wide revenue.”
