New claims manager prompts Axa panel shake-up

Axa is reviewing its legal panel following the appointment of new claims manager David Williams, the company’s former casualty and reinsurance manager.

Axa last reviewed the panel in 2001, when 16 out of 30 firms lost their places.

The review is of all existing panel firms. These are: the Andersen Partnership, Badhams, Beachcroft Wansbroughs, Berrymans Lace Mawer, Cartwrights, HBM Sayers, Jacksons, James Chapman & Co, Kennedys, Keoghs, Mayer Brown Rowe & Maw, Morgan Cole and Palser Grossman.
