A global provider of integrated legal and business services has appointed a new partner to its insurance team in London.
Joining DWF’s expanding professional liability team is Lucy Tolond, a financial services expert with 15 years of experience in the professional indemnity market. She was most recently a partner at BLM, where she worked for more than a decade.
Tolond specialises in defending claims for professional negligence against accountants, tax advisers, financial advisers, insurance brokers, mortgage intermediaries, insolvency practitioners, pension professionals and trustees. She regularly advises insurers on coverage issues and manages large numbers of claims. She has also assisted clients with large-scale redress exercises arising out of S166 Skilled Person Reviews.
Tolond “has a strong reputation as a robust litigator with vast experience of managing wide portfolios of work including taking several high value claims to trial,” said Kieran Walshe, global head of professional indemnity and commercial insurance at DWF. “Her expertise in the financial services sector expertise will complement our client offering and I am delighted that she has chosen to join DWF’s expanding professional liability team.”
