Further expansion for our Insurance team with two new associate hires

Flint Bishop is pleased to announce it has made two new hires to its rapidly expanding Insurance team.

Kiran Ryatt and Laura O’Connor join the firm as associates, with collectively over 30 years’ experience of working for both insurance and self-insured clients.

Prior to joining Flint Bishop, Kiran’s insurance litigation experience included 10 years at DAC Beachcroft, seven years working in-house for RSA and four years defending claims for the NHS Litigation Authority.

During her time at DAC Beachcroft as an associate, team manager and key account manager, she dealt primarily with motor fraud and then developed the employer and public liability fraud product for key clients.

Due to the growth of this fraud product, Kiran latterly trained and managed a large team of dedicated employer and public liability fraud lawyers.

Laura joins the firm having previously spent 14 years at Weightmans, where she initially dealt with public and employer’s liability. Laura also dealt with multi-track motor claims, ultimately working with the large loss team in London.

She also spent two years at Keoghs in the counter fraud team, where she managed a large caseload of suspected motor fraud files.

The department has seen exponential growth in the last 12 months and is now the largest insurance litigation team in the East Midlands consisting of 34 legal experts.

Chief Executive, Qamer Ghafoor comments on the appointments:

“Kiran and Laura are both highly-respected lawyers and will deliver great results for our clients, whilst playing key roles in developing our fraudulent and large-loss claim offerings.

Kiran and Laura join us at an exciting time, as we look to open a new office to expand the reach of our legal services across the Midlands.”
