Wilde Sapte has taken on Professor Robert Merkin, a leading legal academic in insurance, as a consultant.
Merkin is now attached to the firm's insurance practice, and has a remit to deal with business development and training.
Merkin will shortly become Professor of Commercial Law at Cardiff Law School. He is best-known for writing Colinvaux Law of Insurance and is also editor of Insurance Law Monthly and Journal of Business Law.
