Accountancy firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) has confirmed the departure of two more loss adjusters, following the departure of Cila president Andy King in June.

A spokeswoman confirmed that director Tom Battell and senior manager Brian Gibson had left the firm, but could not disclose details of their departure.

However, a market source said the two had been made redundant.

Cila said that King, who was director of insurance claims services in PWC's forensic services division, left the company because of restrictions imposed by the US Sarbanes-Oxley Act on corporate governance.

He said the Act had made the development of a major PWC loss facility acting for insurers more constrained.

The source said a downturn in work as a result of Sarbanes-Oxley was responsible for the redundancies.
