National law firm Weightmans has appointed Catherine Kearney, specialist in complex and catastrophic injury claims, as Partner in its London office.
Catherine joins Weightmans’ Large Loss department from DAC Beachcroft, bringing with her 20 years’ experience in personal injury litigation and 15 years' experience defending motor, public and employer’s liability claims for insurer and non-insurer clients.
Catherine studied law at Queen’s University, Belfast before qualifying as a solicitor in Northern Ireland in 1999. She went on to be admitted as a solicitor in Ireland in 2002 and England and Wales in 2005 and has practised in all three jurisdictions.
Rob Williams, Partner and Head of Insurance at Weightmans, said:
“Catherine brings with her a wealth of experience and exceptionally strong client relationships.
“We are confident that her arrival will bolster our growth plans for the Insurance offering both in London and nationally, and we are delighted to have her on board.”
“The successful defence of insurance claims requires strategic support from specialist teams, which is especially crucial when large sums are at stake. Weightmans is a leading national player in insurance and I am excited to be joining a firm with such an established and respected standing in the market.
“I am keen to establish and develop relationships with existing clients as well as attract new business and look forward to working with my colleagues across the UK to achieve this.”
