International law firm DAC Beachcroft is pleased to announce the appointment of construction litigator Jilly Petrie as a partner in its national Professional & Commercial Risks team, which sits within its Global Insurance practice.
Jilly, who is based in DACB’s newly-relocated Glasgow office, moves from BTO Solicitors where she has advised insurers and construction professionals on construction and engineering disputes for over 15 years.
A partner since 2015, she represents clients in complex, high-value construction and engineering insurance claims across the full spectrum of project, contractors all risk and professional indemnity policies, acting for UK and international insurers and their insureds including developers, consultants, contractors and subcontractors. Her work includes advising on £multi-million claims arising out of some of the highest profile construction and engineering projects in Scotland.
Suzanne Wharton, partner and head of DACB’s 70-strong Professional & Commercial Risks North practice, commented, “Jilly has an excellent reputation in the construction insurance market and we’re delighted to welcome her to DACB.
“Her appointment will be a game changer for us, as we continue to implement our ambitious plans to build our contentious construction-related offering in Scotland, as part of our on-going drive to be the global insurance industry’s legal adviser of choice.”
John Maillie, DACB’s Scotland Location Head, added, “We have sought to make DAC Beachcroft the destination of choice for high calibre Scottish lawyers, and Jilly’s appointment underscores that ambition, building on recent high quality arrivals from our competitors. As well as welcoming one of the leading construction lawyers, her appointment will complement our expanding professional indemnity, regulatory and real estate offering still further in Scotland.”
