Brockwell completes London team with former Allied World/AIG execs

Lloyd’s coverholder Brockwell Capital has completed its London team with the addition of two senior underwriters Andrew Graham and Alec Goodair.

Graham spent seven years in the M&A insurance group at AIG, as both group underwriting counsel and head of the EMEA M&A division before joining Allied World in 2013 to lead its global M&A team.

Goodair was most recently class manager for the financial and commercial institutions books at CNA Hardy. Prior to that, he held senior positions at Allied World and AIG.

Brockwell was co-founded by Lee Amerigo and Lana Soroka. The company specialises in warranty and indemnity, tax liability and contingent liability insurance, spanning all key industry sectors across the UK, continental Europe and Asia Pacific.

Brockwell is authorised to underwrite and bind transactional insurance risks on behalf of a number of long established Lloyd’s syndicates, including Hiscox, Beazley, Argenta, Chaucer, China Re and Tokio Marine Kiln.

“The Brockwell Capital team is now at full strength and our doors are fully open for business," said Graham, managing director. "Buyers of M&A insurance can now choose a range of products from a team that has written well over 500 transactional insurance policies and has more than 60 years of collective experience in the M&A legal and insurance industries."

Graham added: “The environment for corporate transactions tends to be fast moving and we understand the need to have an insurance partner who is nimble, dynamic and flexible. That’s why all of our underwriters are empowered to make rapid decisions. Execution is a key factor in the choice of an underwriter, so we constantly strive to outperform the market to deliver a service that is flexible, fast and efficient.”

“We also know that deals can and do throw up nasty surprises once the dust has settled. That’s why a high-quality claims process is a key element of the Brockwell offering. Our lead capital providers have dedicated and market leading claims teams, underpinned by award-winning claims philosophies. So, our clients have peace of mind that if something does go wrong, we’ll move quickly to help them put it right.”
