Published 7 March 2014
A Chartered Legal Executive from the Claims Validation Team in the Manchester office of international law firm DAC Beachcroft has won Legal Executive of the Year at the Manchester Legal Awards 2014.
Morgan Nash, 31, from Stockport, fought off stiff competition from Weightmans, SAS Daniels LLP and Nexus Solicitors to claim the accolade last night (Thursday 6 March) at Manchester's Midland Hotel.
Commenting on the win, Morgan said: "I am absolutely delighted to have won the award, it was a fantastic evening and I couldn’t be prouder. Thanks to all my colleagues for their support."
Ian McConkey, Regional Senior Partner at the Manchester office of DAC Beachcroft, said: "Huge congratulations to Morgan, a very worthy winner. It's fantastic to see legal executives, who take a less traditional route into the field of law, being recognised for their invaluable contribution to the sector."
Lorraine Carolan, National Head of DAC Beachcroft's Claims Validation Team, said: "This award is testament to and underpins the great contribution Morgan has made to both the Claims Validation Team and the firm since 2010. Morgan has successfully built a market-leading Motor and Casualty Fraud Team for one of the firms leading clients and thoroughly deserves this recognition. He is held in extremely high regard by his clients and colleagues alike".
Morgan joined DAC Beachcroft as part of the Claims Validation Team in October 2010. For the last two years, he has been account manager for one of the firm's major Insurance sector clients. The account incorporates seven fee earners, a supervisor and two support staff and covers fraudulent claims in Motor, Employer Liability-Public Liability and household injury claims.
After completing an LLB Law and Politics degree, Morgan began working for an insurance company ten years ago, after which he worked for a small claimant solicitors firm, specialising in disease claims. He concentrated on Motor and EL/PL claims before moving to legacy firm Halliwells six years ago, where he predominantly worked on EL/PL claims on behalf of insurers and assisted in the supervision of a small team.
