Chubb North America announces new top counsel manager

Property/casualty insurer Chubb has named Liz Daly senior vice president and house counsel manager for its North America claims organisation.

Daly succeeds Patrick Hoey, who will retire from Chubb at the end of August 2017. Hoey has led the House Counsel in the US and Canada for more than 21 years.

In her new role, Daly will oversee 18 House Counsel offices in the United States and Canada, with responsibilities centring on the strategic focus of the legal representation and service provided by the House Counsel offices, attorneys and staff professionals, as well as establishing legal case handling policies and procedures, service, client relations, ethics, operations, finance, personnel and training.

Chubb's House Counsel attorneys provide litigation, trial and appellate legal services to Chubb's commercial and personal policyholders.

Daly most recently served as regional managing attorney for the New Jersey and Pennsylvania House Counsel Offices. She joined The Chubb Corporation in 2000 and has held positions of increasing responsibility in managerial House Counsel roles.

"Liz has been instrumental in the development of the House Counsel and has played an integral part over the last 17 years at Chubb," said Frank Lattal, SVP and chief claims officer, Chubb Group. "She has the skills and expertise necessary to lead the business and understands the relevance of the House Counsel to the overall claims organisation."

Daly will report to Jeffrey Miller, executive vice president, senior claim officer, North American claims.

Lattal said: "On behalf of the claims leadership team, I would like to express our deep gratitude to Pat for his immeasurable contributions to the House Counsel organisation as well as the valuable influence and strength he provided the organisation. We wish him success during his much deserved retirement."
