Allianz and LV= GI appoint claims panels following joint review

As strategic partners, Keoghs, DWF and BLM have supplier contracts effective from 1 May and valid for three years.

All three law firms have worked with LV= GI since its last claims review in 2017 and will individually sit on core defendant claims panels covering fraud, motor, property, property recoveries and major losses.

Both Keoghs and BLM have worked with Allianz before. Similar to LV= GI, they will sit on motor, casualty, and fraud panels, with BLM focusing on major losses. Keoghs will also handle recoveries and property claims. New joiner DWF will be able to receive Allianz instructions for all types of cases.

Eibhlin Swan, head of supply and experts at Allianz Insurance, commented:

"Our suppliers play an integral role in delivering our customer journey and I am delighted that we will continue our relationship with Keoghs and BLM and begin a new relationship with DWF.."

Caroline Johnson, technical claims director at LV= General Insurance, said:

"I'm delighted with the outcome and the opportunity to continue our relationship with a legal panel that shares our passion for delivering for our customers. Our claims legal panel is so important, as it helps us support customers with legal expertise at an incredibly challenging time."
