DWF, the global provider of integrated legal and business services, has announced the appointment of London-based Partner, Claire Bowler, as Head of Major Injury and Casualty in its Insurance Services division.

Claire Bowler has been a partner at DWF for 16 years and was one of two founding partners of DWF's London office in 2008, along with Graham Dickinson.  She has built a strong reputation in the insurance industry over the last 25 years with her innovative approach to solutions for clients and her expertise in large loss and international cases. Claire has held a number of leadership positions at DWF and manages several of the group's key client relationships.

We have real strength and depth across every aspect of major injury and casualty work, with fantastic people delivering market-leading advice to our clients.  We are grateful to the many clients who have provided their support over the years, and I look forward to working closely with our clients and teams to deliver on the commercial solutions, technology and innovation that will help our clients take their businesses into the future."

Claire's appointment follows a period of growth for DWF's insurance division and a series of key panel appointments and reappointments. In the last financial year, DWF promoted 9 colleagues to partner within its Insurance Services division and hired 11 new partners covering a wide range of skills and disciplines. The firm has been reappointed to a number of insurer panels in the last 2 years, including Allianz, Aviva, RSA and QBE, amongst many others.

CEO of the Insurance Services division at DWF, Matthew Doughty, added, "Congratulations to Claire on her appointment. Our insurance division continues to go from strength to strength, delivering market-leading expertise across the entire lifecycle of insurance claims to some of the biggest names in the industry.
