Nigel Knowles, chief executive officer at DWF, added: "This is a great appointment with the UK's largest insurer which gives DWF an opportunity to further extend our relationship with this long-standing client. It also reflects a number of the wider market trends we discussed at our interim results in December, including clients looking to partner with fewer providers across a wider range of services. It is premium work with a premium client and we are delighted to have been appointed."
Today's announcement follows a number of panel appointments secured in the first half of FY23, including QBE, Hiscox and CNA Hardy. DWF has also continued to extend its global insurance capabilities most notably through the completion in December of its transaction with the leading Canadian law firm, Whitelaw Twining.
