Law firm DAC Beachcroft has appointed a new corporate insurance partner, Adrian Williams (pictured).

Williams joins from Swiss Re, where he was general counsel, Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Prior to that, he spent more than five years as head of legal at QBE European Operations, following several years in private practice.

DAC Beachcroft head of insurance, David Pollitt, said: “Our insurance clients have been telling us for some time that they want their panel firms to be able to service their needs from a corporate/commercial advisory perspective, as well as from a claims perspective.

“We have responded to this client demand with the recruitment of Adrian. To have attracted an insurance specialist of his calibre and experience is a major coup for the firm and we are delighted to welcome him to DAC Beachcroft.”
