We are delighted to invite you to our October event. Rocco Pirozzolo, Underwriting Director at QLCC, will be giving a presentation on the features of modern litigation – litigation funding and ATE insurance.
Rocco is a vastly experienced underwriter of complex litigation risks having spent 16 years developing legal expenses insurance business for QBE, Temple Legal Protection and Capita Assistance. A practising solicitor, Rocco has been until recently a Director in the investment Team of Harbour Litigation Funding Ltd.
In addition to being a member of the leadership team of QLCC, Rocco is one of the leading lights of the dispute resolution community. Since 2003, he has been serving on the forums and committees of the Civil Justice Council, a statutory body with responsibility for overseeing and modernising the civil justice system. Rocco has also been a member of The General Insurance Standards Council’s Working Party on BTE insurance and a member of The Association of British Insurers’ Legal Expenses Committee.
Rocco is the general editor of The Law Society’s Litigation Funding Handbook and the author of a number of its chapters, including that on ATE insurance. He contributed to the chapters on ATE insurance and third party funding in the practitioners’ textbook Civil Costs: Law and Practice by Dr Mark Friston.
Rocco’s talk will take place at 5.30pm on Tuesday 30 October at The Broker's Wine Bar, Leadenhall Market, and be followed by an opportunity to network with the benefit of a cash bar.
The talk is free for members and their guests (£10.00 for non-members), but we ask you to register your intention to attend (PLEASE CLICK ON FORTHCOMING EVENTS) so we can control numbers.
