1 September 2015

International law firm Holman Fenwick Willan (HFW) continues to expand its insurance and reinsurance practice with the recruitment of Latin America and financial institutions specialist Christopher Cardona who has joined the firm’s London office as Partner, effective 29 August 2015.

Christopher specialises in dispute resolution in the insurance and reinsurance sector and international financial institutions and professional indemnity work. He has a recognised reputation for handling high-value complex litigation and arbitration especially in the Latin America region. He is bi-lingual in English and Spanish.

Paul Wordley, a senior (re)insurance Partner and member of HFW’s Strategy Board said: “We are delighted to welcome Christopher to the firm. We are seeing significant opportunities in the insurance and reinsurance sector in Latin America and Christopher’s reputation and extensive expertise in this area greatly enhances our service offering to clients and underlines our commitment to the global insurance market. The addition of Christopher to our existing Latin America team of Jonathan Bruce (London), Elizabeth Leonhardt (Geneva) and Geoffrey Conlin (São Paulo) makes HFW one of the strongest Latin America teams in the insurance market.”

Christopher commented “I am excited by the opportunity my move to HFW presents. The firm has an active Latin America practice covering a number of core industry sectors and I look forward to helping the firm take advantage of the opportunities for further growth in this region.”

Christopher joins the firm from Chadbourne & Parke LLP where he was a Partner.
