HFW Continues Global Insurance Growth With Further London Partner Hire

17 April 2023

Global, sector-focused law firm HFW has continued to expand its leading insurance offering with the hire of senior partner Mark Meyer.

Mark has more than 20 years’ experience advising insurers and reinsurers on coverage and other disputes, and joins HFW’s London office from the US law firm Crowell & Moring, where he headed its European insurance practice. Crowell insurance associate Marli Wildschut also joins HFW as part of the move.

This continues the growth of HFW’s global insurance practice, following the firm’s recruitment of senior corporate and regulatory insurance partner Bob Haken in London and insurance disputes expert Amanda Kujda in Houston.

HFW now has more than 20 specialist insurance and reinsurance partners throughout the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia Pacific, offering a comprehensive range of advisory, dispute resolution, transactional, and regulatory services to clients across the sector.

Christopher Foster, Global Head of Insurance and Reinsurance, HFW:

“Mark is a highly experienced practitioner and is another important addition to our team. His particular expertise in complex reinsurance disputes further strengthens our leading offering in that area, and his aviation practice aligns perfectly with what is one of HFW’s core sectors globally.

“We continue to expand our insurance and reinsurance practice globally, and will actively pursue opportunities to further strengthen our offering to clients on complex, high value or reputational matters across our international network through the recruitment of leading partners and teams.”

Mark acts for insurers and reinsurers in the London and European markets on a range of complex and high-value insurance-related disputes, with a particular focus on reinsurance and delegated authority disputes, and aviation insurance.

He is legal counsel to the Reinsurance Wordings Experts’ Forum and is a member of the Aviation Insurance Association, the Professional Liability Underwriters Society, the London Court of International Arbitration, and the International Committee of ARIAS U.S.

Mark Meyer, Partner, HFW:

“I’m very pleased to be joining a recognised market leader for global insurance law. Having worked with HFW in the past on client matters, it was clear that the firm has an inclusive culture and that partners work closely together, which is something that appeals to me, and having the support of a world-renowned aviation team will add real value to my aviation practice.”
