Gary WalklingRPC

RPC has a well-earned reputation in financial, liability and professional lines, property, power generation, energy and marine insurance and reinsurance lines. Continuing to bolster its bench strength, the firm recently recruited Mike Newham from Mayer Brown International LLP to bolster its coverage practice and on regulatory investigations against professionals. Global department head Simon Laird and James Wickes represent financial institutions, with Wickes being one of London’s leading specialists on W&I claims. Property specialist Victoria Sherratt and onshore/offshore energy, power and heavy industry insurance risks partners Leigh Williams and Gary Walkling, are also highly recommended. For political risk, Naomi Vary is the lead, and Lucy Dyson is noted for casualty exposures in the US, Caribbean and Latin America.
