Hill Taylor Dickinson’s maritime insurance department has been hit with the loss of another key partner, this time to Richards Butler.
Chris Zavos’ move to Richards Butler follows the departure of insurance partners Tim Taylor and Patrick Foss from Hill Taylor a year ago to Barlow Lyde & Gilbert’s small but burgeoning shipping department.
The respected litigators were understood to be significant losses for Hill Taylor since their insurance cases included the likes of Exxon Valdez, Piper Alpha and the Marchioness disaster.
Hill Taylor retains several partners specialising in maritime insurance, though Zavos is believed to have been one of its biggest hitters.
Zavos joins a team of three partners at Richards Butler’s maritime insurance department, headed by Mark Connoley. Zavos’ hull insurance practice fits with Richards Butler which is considered strong in this sector.
