Reading firm Field Seymour Parkes has broken into the insurance and reinsurance market with the hire of Denton Wilde Sapte partner James Pilgrim-Morris.
Pilgrim-Morris is an insurance litigator, with particular expertise in Lloyd’s work, reinsurance and product liability disputes. Although Field Seymour already has a commercial litigation capability, this is the first time it has been able to offer insurance litigation advice. Managing partner Philip Seymour said: “Because of his expertise, there’s no reason why we shouldn’t be able to break into this market.”
Pilgrim-Morris, who joins Field Seymour on 1 December, is understood to have left Dentons because he no longer wanted to work in the City.
At the same time, Field Seymour has taken on property partner Rachel Booth from Reading rival Pittmans. Booth takes the number of property partners at Field Seymour to four.
