International law firm DAC Beachcroft has today opened a new office in Miami, USA.

The move forms part of the firm's Americas growth strategy and will help to consolidate its strengths in insurance and reinsurance in Latin America.

"We are very excited about this development, which marks a further important step in the firm's international expansion plans," commented managing partner Paul Murray.

A permanent presence in Miami will be provided by Sascha Stullenberg, formerly of AIG, who has broad experience of the Latin American and Caribbean insurance markets.

Stullenberg has taken on the role of liaising between DAC's local offices throughout the region and the Miami market.

DAC Beachcroft has a strong presence in the insurance sector in Latin America, with offices Mexico, Chile and Colombia.

"The final piece of the jigsaw has been Miami, a rapidly growing market through which an increasing amount of Latin American insurance and reinsurance business flows," said head of insurance David Pollitt.

Commented Latin American Regional Head, Anthony Menzies: "The move has been first and foremost a response to significant client demand and it is particularly exciting coming so soon after the announcement of our close relationship with Demarest in Brazil. Together, it means we now have a presence in the two leading Latin American insurance and reinsurance centres, São Paulo and Miami".
