International law firm DAC Beachcroft is pleased to have secured yet another strong set of overall rankings across seven practice areas in Chambers & Partners’ Global Guide 2022.

Once again retaining a Band 1 global ranking for its Latin American Insurance expertise, DAC Beachcroft was described as a “stellar insurance outfit revered for its ability to handle high-level cross-border mandates involving Latin America”.  Chambers also noted that the firm “is routinely retained by an enviable list of insurers to advise on high-stakes disputes”.

DACB was also highlighted globally for its contentious insurance practice with a Band 2 ranking.  Chambers noted that “the firm’s global platform is made up of a market-leading team in the UK, a strong network in continental Europe and comprehensive coverage of Latin America”.  

In Ireland, DACB Dublin was again recognised with a global ranking for Dispute Resolution, with Chambers remarking on the team’s “notable experience in professional disciplinary matters” and “impressive client list that includes several of Ireland's main statutory regulatory bodies”.

DACB’s UK-based teams were recognised with global rankings across four different categories, including Insurance Sector: Insurer (International & Cross-Border), Insurance: Contentious Claims & Reinsurance, Insurance: Contentious Claims & Reinsurance (Latin America), and Employment.  

Sixteen DACB lawyers were ranked in the 2022 Global guide, up from ten individuals in 2021.  Those who were singled out this year include UK-based Insurance partners Anthony Menzies, Chris Wilkes, Duncan Strachan, Julian Miller, Liam O’Connell, Mark Kendall and Nick Young; UK Employment partners Khurram Shamsee, David Sims and Georgina Rowley, as well as legal director Kate Galloway and senior associate Rose Jakeman; UK Tax partner John Dunlop; Dublin-based litigation partners Lisa Broderick and Rowena McCormack; and Madrid-based dispute resolution partner Mercedes Romero.
