Law firm Clyde & Co has hired two insurance partners in London.
Mandip Sagoo and Angus Duncan have joined Clyde & Co from Mayer Brown.
Sagoo advises insurers in connection with some of their most significant and complex financial institutions, professional indemnity, and warranty and indemnity claims. He is experienced in matters involving civil and criminal litigation as well as regulatory proceedings and investigations, frequently involving cross-border and multi-party elements.
Duncan acts for insurers in the financial lines markets. This includes advising on global exposures in respect of Madoff-related claims and on coverage in connection with various Eastern European bank exposures.
He also advises on policy wordings and on commercial directors and officers claims, with recent work including claims following the high profile collapses of well-known companies in the UK, as well as working on a variety of professional indemnity issues, with a current focus on the tax scheme exposures faced by accountants and independent financial advisers.
Sarah Clover, partner at Clyde & Co, said: “Mandip and Angus both bring with them skills, experience and client bases which complement our existing professional and financial disputes practice very well. We look forward to them joining and further bolstering our practice in the UK and internationally.”
Clyde & Co’s professional and financial disputes group comprises over 150 lawyers in the UK. Its professional liability and financial lines practice is long established in policy coverage, defending claims and regulatory proceedings, focusing on each of the major professions, as well as ’emerging professions’ such as recruitment, management consultants and IT professionals.
The group operates across all Clyde & Co’s offices worldwide, with specialist professional liability teams in key jurisdictions.
