DWF hires City construction head from Simmons
DWF has hired construction partner Iftikhar Ali from Simmons & Simmons in London.
Ali will join DWF’s insurance practice, focusing his efforts on construction, power, and engineering cases. At Simmons he worked as the head of construction and risks, and boasts such former clients as Zurich, Chubb, and Aviva.
DWF partner Kieran Walshe commented on Ali’s “breadth of expertise” in coverage and liability, particularly internationally. Walshe also specially noted Ali’s “particular strength” when it comes to construction in markets such as the UAE and Latin America.
