Forbes Solicitors is pleased to announce that David Pickford, a Partner in the Insurance Department based at the firm's Leeds office, has been elected as Head of the Public Sector Focus Group for the Forum of Insurance Lawyers (FOIL).
FOIL is the national organisation that represents lawyers acting on behalf of insurers and self insured bodies. They are regularly involved in Government legislative consultations affecting the sector and in lobbying for change.
David comments on his appointment, "The forthcoming 12 months will no doubt be challenging times for the Public Sector with the ongoing spending review and Government plans to implement the recommendations of the Young Report. Forbes has a long and established reputation in this market, and I am delighted to have this opportunity to help shape policy and influence change on behalf of our clients and the industry."
