Published On: 29 September 2016
International law firm DAC Beachcroft has appointed two new partners in a further boost to its Global team based in London: Simon Jones and Rachel Cropper-Mawer.
Simon joins the firm from Cozen O'Connor where he had been Managing Partner of the London office. Also formerly of Clyde & Co, he will work across DAC Beachcroft's Global Property Casualty and Property Recovery Services teams.
In his new role, Simon will draw on DAC Beachcroft's international network of offices and associations to expand the firm's well-established subrogated recoveries capabilities with an emphasis on large loss international claims as well as high volume claims on a domestic basis.
Meanwhile, Rachel Cropper-Mawer, an experienced litigator with specialist knowledge in anti-bribery and corruption, has joined DAC Beachcroft's Commercial Litigation team in London.
Also formerly a partner at Clyde & Co, Rachel moved on to senior leadership roles with BP and Willis, which gives her a unique insight into the internal mechanics of large corporates and what clients want from their external lawyers. In addition, she has completed secondments to the FCA Enforcement Team and a reinsurance company in Germany and speaks regularly at the C5 anti-corruption and compliance conferences.
Commenting on the latest appointments, Nick Young, Regional Senior Partner at DAC Beachcroft's London Minster Court office, said: "I'm delighted to welcome two such high-calibre candidates to our already outstanding Global team here in London. Their expertise, in subrogated recoveries and anti-bribery respectively, present fantastic new opportunities for our business and I look forward to seeing these areas grow significantly in time."
