DAC Beachcroft announces double partner hire

The appointments follow the firm’s plan to strengthen key service lines in its international insurance practice.

DAC Beachcroft (DACB) has announced that Ian Plumley and Jon Ogle have both joined as partners in the firm’s global insurance practice in London.

Plumley joins from Clyde and Co where he was a partner in its property, liability and cyber team for over 10 years. Acting for insurer and reinsurer clients in Lloyd’s, the London market, US, Europe and Bermuda, he has experience advising on large-scale policy coverage disputes arising from international casualty and complex property claims.

Additionally, DACB said he is an “expert” on Bermuda Form insurance cover. Most recently, he has been involved in advising on business interruption claims resulting from Covid-19.

Meanwhile, Ogle joins from Norton Rose Fulbright where he was a partner and jointly led its EMEA Insurance and Reinsurance Disputes Market group.

He represents London market and overseas insurers and reinsurers on complex, multi-jurisdictional insurance and reinsurance coverage disputes across a variety of claims lines.

This includes complex property and business interruption, financial, civil liability and employers’ liability. 

Liam O’Connell, head of the global London team at DAC Beachcroft, said: “Ian and Jon are hugely experienced insurance litigators and very well regarded in the London and international insurance markets. We’re delighted to welcome them to DACB. 

“Both are pivotal appointments for us, as we continue to strengthen key service lines in our international insurance practice and build on our position as the global insurance industry’s legal advisor of choice.”
