Fenchurch Law recruits product liability specialist

Fenchurch Law has appointed Aaron Le Marquer as a partner, expanding its insurance coverage dispute capabilities and international expertise.

Le Marquer joins Fenchurch Law from Tilleke & Gibbins, a regional law firm in Southeast Asia, where he established an insurance practice and subsequently became a partner based in Thailand.

Previously, he was assistant general counsel for the Asia Pacific with AIG in Singapore. He originally trained and practised as an insurance and product liability lawyer with City and US firms based in London.

Le Marquer specialises in insurance disputes for policyholders with a focus on product liability and recall and complex international losses.

His experience extends to all commercial lines of business and he has handled significant London market losses and represented manufacturers and insurers in high-profile cases in the tobacco, automotive, consumer electronics, pharmaceutical and medical device sectors.

David Pryce, managing partner of Fenchurch Law, said of Le Marquer’s appointment: “The start of 2020 marks a period of growth in our capabilities. Aaron is recognised for his insurance disputes work in Asia and now brings this substantial experience acting for policyholders and brokers on large scale and complex claims disputes together with strong insurance industry expertise and multi-jurisdictional experience.”

“There is no doubt both Fenchurch Law and our clients will benefit significantly from his appointment. We will be making further announcements about the expansion of our team in the coming weeks.”

Fenchurch Law appointed Rob Goodship as an associate in its coverage dispute team in September.

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