Insurance law firm Keoghs is expanding into Northern Ireland by joining forces with Caldwell Warner, a leading insurance focused practice located in the heart of Belfast.
The move into Northern Ireland means Keoghs, a leading provider of specialist dispute resolution services for the UK insurance industry, now has offices in all UK jurisdictions. The firm launched in Scotland in 2018, and has a network of offices in Bolton, Coventry, Liverpool, London, Manchester and Southampton.
Keoghs Chief Executive Officer, John Whittle, said: “Expanding into Northern Ireland represents another key step towards our strategic mission of becoming the preeminent law firm to the UK insurance sector. Insurers need UK wide coverage from their legal partners to ensure consistency and quality across jurisdictions. Welcoming Caldwell Warner to Keoghs strengthens our offering and capabilities and we look forward to introducing our clients to our new colleagues soon.”
Caldwell Warner, an insurance focused practice since 1975, represents a number of major UK insurers across multiple lines of claim.
Caldwell Warner’s Managing Partner, Ivan Warner, said: “We are delighted to be joining what we believe to be the most progressive law firm in the UK insurance sector. Their market-leading drive on innovation and genuine focus on their people and values assures me that Keoghs will be a great home for us and our clients.”
The deal is subject to regulatory approval and is expected to complete this summer.
