He brings more than 20 years’ legal and technical experience to Horwich Farrelly where he will be primarily focused on developing the firm’s defendant capabilities. He has studied towards and completed an MBA and has been closely involved with a major UK insurer in successfully challenging the status quo in the way insurance claims are handled.
Rob Barrett, managing partner at Horwich Farrelly, said: “We are delighted to have Martin join the team, underpinning the continuing growth of our business. He is passionate about the quality of service provided to clients, and always endeavours to ensure the client remains at the heart of the claims process at all times.
“Martin is a natural fit for Horwich Farrelly, as he always seeks innovative solutions to any challenge, as well as having extensive industry knowledge and being a friendly and approachable colleague.”
McKenna said that the firm had grown enormously since his time there, particularly within the past two years, having invested heavily in raising its profile and solidifying its position as a market-leader in claims handling.
“This is a very exciting time for the firm as a whole and I am excited to be back on board at such a timea,” he said.
The announcement follows the recent appointments of Tony McLoughlin and Alistair Graham, and brings Horwich Farrelly’s total number of Partners to 33.
