Clyde & Co continues to expand office space in the US


Clyde & Co has opened a new office in Los Angeles, marking the company’s ninth US office.

Jim Koelzer has been hired from Robins Kaplan as partner of the new office. His work focuses on complex insurance coverage issues and disputes.

Julie Hawkinson, who served in the company’s San Francisco office, has also been appointed as partner. She practices insurance coverage and defence work, representing domestic and international insurers on claims made under policies.

Marie Roehm has also joined the firm from Robins Kaplan as of counsel, along with Aaron Sussman, who joins as an associate.

Finally, Clyde & Co Senior Associate Natasha Mikha will also be located in the office.

Hawkinson commented: "In addition to its well-known prowess in the creative industries, LA also has a burgeoning technology sector based around Silicon Beach, which is leading to a growing volume of technology related activity for our insurance clients. We look forward to growing our client base in the city by having a permanent base there."

The latest expansion follows on from the opening of offices in Washington DC and Chicago in January, and Miami last year in July.
