In brief: Indemnity specialist switches to Dibbs

Dibb Lupton Alsop has recruited Chris Sharrock as a partner in its London-based professional indemnity practice. Sharrock moves from Barlow Lyde & Gilbert where he was a partner for nine years. Kevin Mcloughlin, head of Dibbs' insurance group, welcomed the move, which he said was amicable. “He is a fine lawyer and is he well connected in financial services,” said Mcloughlin. “We were looking for a professional indemnity specialist for a while so he is ideal. He also has experience of Hong Kong and will be able to advise on our office out there and he will also add to our growing London presence.”
