She advises clients on claims and issues across financial lines, subrogated recoveries, property and commercial disputes, the firm said in a statement, noting that the “strength of Tiarn’s relationships with her clients and within the insurance industry sets her apart”.

Speaking about the promotion, Gilchrist Connell managing principal Richard Wood said: “This promotion is well deserved and a reflection of Tiarn’s technical skills, leadership qualities and her solid client relationships.”

Firm principal Alex Haslam added: “We are incredibly proud of Tiarn’s accomplishments and delighted to promote her to principal. Clients appreciate Tiarn’s ability to deliver practical solutions that fit their circumstances, and I have no doubt that Tiarn’s continued success will be an inspiration to others.”
