Hill Dickinson in talks to transfer insurance group to Keoghs
Hill Dickinson is reportedly in the midst of discussions that could see the firm’s non-marine insurance group transferred to Keoghs. If the proposal passes a partner vote, the transfer could be completed by late 2017.
Under the proposal, Hill Dickinson would retain part of its insurance business, including its clinical negligence and marine insurance businesses, which have operated separately from the remainder of the firm’s insurance business.
Peter Jackson, Hill Dickinson chief executive, said the transition would benefit both firms, as Hill Dickinson would be able to focus on other areas, while allowing its insurance business to operate under a firm that specializes in that area.
