Fenchurch Law adds Goodship to coverage dispute team

Insurance firm Fenchurch Law has appointed Rob Goodship as an associate in its coverage dispute team.

Goodship (pictured) specialises in insurance disputes and has considerable experience in property damage, construction and professional indemnity coverage issues.

He joins Fenchurch Law from Kennedys, where he was an associate in the firm’s property, energy and construction team.

Goodship has acted for several leading insurers in coverage disputes across a range of first party and liability claims, as well as defending claims against professionals.

He has also acted jointly for insurers and their insureds in a number of large subrogated recovery actions.

David Pryce, managing partner of Fenchurch Law, said: “Rob is an experienced insurance litigator and his background in advising both insurers and insureds in coverage disputes in some of our core business areas, that makes him an important addition to what is the UK’s largest team of policyholder–focused insurance disputes solicitors.”

Fenchurch Law strengthened its coverage dispute team late last year with the additions of Laura Steer, James Breese and Daniel Robin.

Steer joined as a senior associate. She has extensive experience in representing policyholders, insurers and reinsurers in complex and high value, insurance and reinsurance coverage disputes.

Breese is an associate with considerable experience in insurance disputes, litigation and regulation.

Robin also joined as an associate. He has experience of working for the London insurance market in most aspects of the commercial insurance industry as a panel solicitor for insurers, as an insurance broker, and as an insurance claims handler.
