Loss adjuster Crawford & Company has confirmed it is to expand its Global Marine capability in the UK.
This unit will work closely with the surveying and loss adjusting arm of the operation, protecting clients' interests from the moment that a claim is initiated, throughout the survey process and to the conclusion of the recoveries/claims process.
Bobby Nolan, who will oversee the unit, will report to Bill Mawhinney, UK Head of Global Marine & Transportation.
Ms. Nolan joins Crawford from Hill Dickinson, where she was a partner in the specialist Cargo, Freight and Logistics team.
Her experience encompasses all aspects of Goods in Transit law, including cargo recoveries, freight liability claims and insurance policy disputes.
She also has experience in dealing with the interpretation and drafting of logistics and supply chain agreements.
Prior to joining Hill Dickinson, Ms. Nolan worked in an in-house role within the legal department of British Nuclear Fuels Plc.
Sarah Civil, head of GTS in the UK, said: “I am very pleased to welcome Bobby to Crawford. As a marine and logistics solicitor, her skills will be a great asset to the Global Marine & Transportation team. As well as heading up the new Marine Recoveries unit, she will also bring her legal experience to assist with the more complex case reviews.”
Benedict Burke, chief executive officer, UK & Ireland, said: “Establishing a dedicated Marine Recoveries unit is a great achievement for Crawford and something which will help us provide even better support to our many clients in the marine and transportation sector. I look forward to seeing it go from strength to strength.”
