John GroomeDWF

DWF has been particularly busy in respect of COVID-related instructions at direct insurance and reinsurance levels, acting for both London market and international carriers, in addition to its expanding workload in product liability, property and Bermuda form. Described as a ‘pioneer in the classes he specialises in’, David Abbott is known for his political risk, trade credit and reinsurance work. For property and product liability, senior partner John Groome , Peter Barnes (particularly for Japanese and Far East markets) and Charlotte Kelly are also noted. Jonathan Moss and Antony Woodhouse also come recommended.
