Maria Kidd

Experience

  • I joined BLM in 2013 and was promoted to partner in May 2019. 
  • I have over 10 years’ experience of dealing with high value subrogated property recovery claims arising from every type of peril. 
  • I deal with a mixed caseload of household, commercial property and engineering claims and believe in making appropriately timed Part 36 offers to deliver results for clients. 
  • I also have a wide range of experience of providing policy coverage advice in respect of motor insurance coverage issues and property damage claims. 
  • My knowledge of policy coverage issues proves invaluable when dealing with third party insurers who rely on indemnity issues to refuse to settle a claim.      
  • I supervise a team of property recovery fee earners within the volume recovery department.
  • The team handles a mixture of pre-litigation, post litigation, delegated and non-delegated subrogated property recovery instructions for several leading insurers.
  • The dedicated and enthusiastic property recovery team drives down the lifecycle of claims by taking a proactive approach to settling claims by making early P36 offers and chasing matters by telephone to ensure that third party insurers are put under pressure to settle claims at the earliest stage.

Qualifications

  • University of Manchester LLB LAw (Hons)
  • Manchester Metropolitan University Legal Practice Course (Commendation)
