FOIL elects new president

Keoghs partner Andrew Underwood has taken up a new role as president of the Forum of Insurance Lawyers (FOIL).

Underwood succeeded Davies Lavery’s Claire McKinney to the post at FOIL’s annual general meeting after a year as vice-president.

Keoghs was a founder member of the forum, which represents the needs and issues of defendant insurance lawyers. Over the last year, the 11th since FOIL’s inception, membership has increased to nearly 1700 individual members.

Underwood is one of just three honorary life members, the accolade awarded in recognition of the work he has done for the organisation.
