Office move for BLM as it expands Irish presence

21 Feb 2017

BLM is to double its Dublin office space signing a lease for 5,000sqft in the city centre at St Stephen’s Green House, Dublin 1.

Peter Campbell, head of BLM Ireland, said the move comes as a result of securing a number of new customers and natural organic growth from the BLM network leading to an expansion of the team.

“BLM’s model of promoting an integrated approach to risk and claims management is industry defining. Our growth is not only in line with our insurance customers responding to the needs of the market, but is also due to our success in becoming panel members for the State Claims Agency.  Our work for the Agency is defending and litigation against State Authorities,” said Peter.

BLM’s Dublin office was established in 2012 and expanded following a merger with long-standing firm Campbell Fitzpatrick in 2014.  The Dublin office, led by partner Gavin Campbell, currently has 32 staff including four partners.  

According to Gavin, the firm has built on the strong foundations set by the core team led by Rhona McGrath in order to expand.   “We have worked hard to build on the excellent work of the core team,  not just to develop it,  but to establish a specialist Health Care team led by Nessa O’Roarty, which also services the State Claims Agency. 

 “Most  recently we expanded with the appointment of Garrett Cormican to lead our Professional Indemnity team to support our defence work against construction, legal and financial professionals and in coming months we will seek to increase our head count further with senior hires in a number of areas.”

The firm will vacate its current Dublin 4 premises in August to facilitate a move when the courts are in recess.

BLM’s insurance business customers include 15 of the top 20 UK insurers, along with leading brokers, MGAs, loss adjusters and other intermediaries.
