PI insurance law firm opens Bristol office

One professional indemnity insurance law firm has opened up a new Bristol office after snapping up a total of 18 new legal professionals from a London business insurance law firm, industry experts recently reported.

The new Bristol office of Reynolds Porter Chamberlain, with its team of 28 staff members, has three partners and 11 lawyers from CMS Cameron McKenna, with an additional three partners and a legal director joining the firm this coming March.  Situated in close proximity to Temple Meads railway station in Bristol’s business district, the business liability insurance law specialists have set up shop on one floor of the Temple Circus building.

The initial focus of the new office will be on the London market, as the firm will be specialising in defending professional indemnity insurance legal claims from brokers, accountants for contractors, trustees, pension professionals, as well as from the financial services construction, and legal sectors as well.  Jonathan Watmough, managing partner for RPC, said that the firm has years of experience handling the complexities of professional indemnity legal work, and this new office highlights the strong commitment the firm has to that facet of its business.

The new staff members will bring not only greater breadth and depth to RPC’s overall insurance practice, Mr Watmough added, but they will seamlessly integrate with the firm’s top-ranked professional indemnity insurance team as well.

RPC has been growing steadily over the past few months.  The Bristol office opening comes on the heels of an announcement made last November that RPC has established its first office overseas in Singapore in the wake of welcoming Mark Errington, their new insurance and reinsurance partner.
