Mills & Reeve acquires nine-strong defendant insurance team from DLA Piper
Mills & Reeve has acquired a nine-strong defendant insurance team from DLA Piper. The team will start on 1 July 2013 and be based in the law firm’s Birmingham office.
The team will be led by partner Alan Jacobs, formerly head of DLA Piper’s Birmingham insurance group.
Jacobs has considerable experience in handling serious RTA, employer liability and public liability claims. He created the Medical Experts’ Database Service, an online medical database for the insurance industry.
He brings with him a team of eight, including associate Felicity Ho, solicitor Jagjit Virdi, three other fee-earners and three support staff.
The team is expected to utilise Mills & Reeve’s Norwich-based paralegal support unit (PSU), which deals with systematic procedures such as e-discovery.
