DWF reappointed to RSA's defence panel

DWF has been reappointed to RSA's defence legal panel, covering the insurer's motor, casualty, property and complex claims.

The law firm is one of three to be appointed to the insurer’s panel, reduced from six previously.

The firm has also extended the range of services it provides to RSA, adding complex work in Northern Ireland to its set of services.

Glyn Jones, global head of insurance at DWF, said: "RSA is one of our largest and longest-standing clients and we are absolutely delighted to have been reappointed to their defence legal panel. We look forward to continuing to strengthen our relationship with RSA."

Nigel Knowles, chief executive officer at DWF, added: "This is another great appointment for our colleagues in insurance and follows quickly on the heels of our reappointment to Aviva's core legal panel. It also provides further evidence of the shifting dynamics in the legal services market for clients to work with fewer providers, something we have been signalling for some time. Our ability to deliver integrated legal and business services is a clear differentiator and is helping us to win in the market."

This panel reappointment is effective from this week, and follows others secured for this year with Aviva, QBE, Hiscox and CNA Hardy.
