Marsh, an insurance broker and risk advisor, has formed a new global claims practice in a move to better support clients in managing their claims effectively.

Marsh has appointed David Pigot as global head of claims to lead the new practice and will operate from London. Pigot is head of claims for the firm’s international division and EMEA region.

Pigot joined Marsh in 2004. He has more than 30 years of insurance industry experience, including 24 years as an international claims adjuster at Toplis & Harding and Cunningham Lindsey International.

Pigot said an efficient and accurate claims recovery process can help clients avoid exorbitant costs and additional risks.

"With the formation of a global claims practice, Marsh will be in a better position to respond with agility and on a best-in-front basis to our clients’ claims anywhere in the world," Pigot said. 

Marhs has over 1,350 dedicated claims executives around the world.
