Towergate Insurance Brokers hires legal eagle

Leading independent insurance brokers Towergate Insurance Brokers has expanded its Welsh team by appointing a new head of legal indemnities.

Dafydd Jonathan will lead Towergate’s legal indemnities department from Cardiff, working with solicitors, surveyors and property developers across the UK providing them with insurance solutions for a range of risks surrounding the “dark arts” of property insurance: legal indemnities.

Dafydd brings a wealth of experience with him, having studied law at undergraduate and master’s level, and completing the Legal Practice Course at Cardiff University. He has experience from working in the legal profession for a number of years, before then moving into the insurance world.

Discussing his new role, Dafydd said: “Towergate Insurance Brokers is one of the UK’s most prominent independent insurance brokers and risk management advisors in Wales. Joining the team gives me a great opportunity to continue to grow my existing client base whilst aiding my personal development.

“Predicting behaviours in the property market is never an easy thing, especially as the property market has changed significantly during the pandemic. Solicitors and their clients will need the best advice possible when dealing with legal indemnities, and I’m looking forward to providing that alongside the Towergate team.”

Also, a keen rugby player, Dafydd has ties with local team Caerphilly RFC and has been fortunate enough to play rugby abroad, in both Australia and New Zealand. Playing rugby has helped Dafydd to develop a strong network of business contacts in Wales.

Gary Stevens, Area Managing Director Wales at Towergate Insurance Brokers said: “I am delighted to welcome Dafydd to the Cardiff team. His experience in the legal sector will be a great addition to the legal indemnities department, alongside the team player attitude he’s learnt from the years of playing rugby. I’m sure he’ll thrive here.”
