Naomi Vary Joins Sedgwick LLP as Partner

Prominent International Attorney Further Expands Insurance Division

LONDON, UK, February 28, 2017 / — Sedgwick LLP is pleased to announce that Naomi Vary has joined the firm as a partner in its London office. Vary is a leading lawyer in the field of political risk insurance and reinsurance, trade credit insurance, political violence and stand-alone terrorism insurance. During her 20-year career, Vary has counseled insurers and reinsurers throughout the world representing them on policies relating to an array of industries, from agricultural business in Latin America to international mining enterprises. Her extensive experience includes a wide range of matters, including policy disputes, wordings and recovery actions following claims, with an emphasis on insurance issues related to trade and investment.

“Few English lawyers can match Naomi’s depth of experience in international insurance matters,” said Edward Smerdon, managing partner of Sedgwick’s London office. “Insurers have turned to her to handle their most complex legal issues and claims. Her industry leadership and experience bring tremendous value to our firm and clients. In particular, she will be enhancing Sedgwick’s leading crisis management insurance offering across its U.S. and London offices, which already includes product recall, cyber and political violence insurance.”

The success Vary has achieved on behalf of her clients ranges from advising London market insurers on political risk claims after the collapse of the Enron group of companies to advising American insurers on claims arising out of the provision of credit policies to various institutions in Turkey. In her practice, she also manages claims involving most major classes of loss, including contingency and bloodstock. Vary earned her B.A. in Natural Sciences and her Law Part IB Tripos at Downing College at Cambridge University. She went on to complete the legal practice course in Guildford.
