England’s Hammond Suddards Edge has appointed a new partner to head its Birmingham, U.K., commercial insurance team. Ian Welland leaves Hammonds’ base within Lloyds of London to take the Birmingham job. National head of insurance Michael Robin says Welland will spearhead the firm’s drive into the growing Midlands insurance market. “Many of our London-based clients have Midlands regional offices. By strengthening the existing local team we are able to offer a top flight service on their doorstep,” says Robin. The Birmingham insurance group has five lawyers and Welland says it will have three more within a year. “There’s a lot of room for us to pick up a range of new clients, both insurance companies and insured parties. “The Midlands is a lucrative market because of the number of Lloyds syndicates here,” he adds. Welland, who is also a part-qualified accountant, specializes in employer, public and product liability claims and professional indemnity. He moved to Hammonds in London four years ago when it took over the insurance team at his former firm Forsyte Saunders Kerman.
