Davies Arnold Cooper (DAC) is losing an insurance and reinsurance partner to one of its clients, Jardine Lloyd Thompson.
Edward Foss is joining the company, the fifth-largest broker in the world, in the new year, although a date has not yet been fixed.
He is set to join the in-house department to specialise in litigation on a worldwide basis. However, the firm expects that its relationship with Foss will continue.
This is the latest in a long line of departures for DAC, with its most recent loss occurring in May this year, when its entire media and defamation team left for Reynolds Porter Chamberlain (The Lawyer, 8 May).
On the client side, DAC has lost work with Norwich Union and Royal & SunAlliance to Barlow Lyde & Gilbert, which in April began taking on a number of lawyers from DAC’s common law department.
Both Foss and DAC were unavailable for comment.
