International law firm DAC Beachcroft has announced the appointment of Kate Archer and Paul Cox as partners in its Claims Solutions business.
Archer is a specialist in defending motor-related large loss and catastrophic injury claims and most recently served as a Director at DWF.
She previously worked at DAC Beachcroft as a partner from 1996 to 2012 and now re-joins the firm as part of its 400-strong national Motor Insurance team, based in Manchester.
Cox is also a specialist in large loss and catastrophic injury cases and joins DAC Beachcroft from Browne Jacobson, where he most recently served as Technical Claims Director.
In his new role, he will form part of DAC Beachcroft’s Birmingham-based Catastrophic Injury team, focusing on cases involving brain and spinal injuries, as well as fatal accident claims and those involving chronic pain syndrome.
Craig Dickson, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of DAC Beachcroft Claims Solutions, commented on the appointments: “We’re really pleased to welcome Paul and Kate to the partnership. They are highly regarded practitioners, acknowledged by clients and peers alike for their technical expertise as well as their ability to build strong client relationships.
“These two appointments support our strategic plan to build our Claims Solutions business, not just in Manchester and Birmingham but across our wider network,” continued Dickson.
Cox also stated: “I am delighted to have joined the team at DAC Beachcroft. Having specialised in catastrophic and large loss work for a number of years, joining such a well-established team with a stellar reputation presents some very exciting opportunities for the future.”
“I am very excited to be returning to DAC Beachcroft,” added Archer. “The firm is enjoying really strong growth and I am looking forward to working with the existing highly regarded Motor team in Manchester to further strengthen and develop the practice in the City and throughout the North West.”
