October 7, 2010

Canada-based LAWPRO reported it has made changes and appointments to its claims management group.

Duncan Gosnell, executive vice president, is now responsible for the Claims and Underwriting & Customer Service departments at LAWPRO. A member of the LAWPRO executive group since 1995, Gosnell has been instrumental in developing the underwriting and customer service functions at the company. For much of the past year, he had been acting vice president, claims as well as overseeing the Underwriting and Customer Service Department as executive vice president.

The claims function at LAWPRO will consist of two departments, each headed by a vice president.

Jerzy Adamowicz is vice president of the new Specialty Claims Department, responsible for a number of areas including, among others, TitlePLUS and Excess Insurance claims and claims involving coverage issues. Adamowicz holds LL.B and LL.M degrees from universities in Israel, and has extensive experience as a practitioner, counsel and claims examiner in both Israel and Canada. He has held several managerial positions in the LAWPRO Claims department since 1994, most recently as Claims Director.

Jack Daiter is vice president of the new Primary Professional Liability Claims Department, responsible for most of LAWPRO’s primary professional liability claims. After obtaining his LL.B (Ottawa) and LL.M (Osgoode) degrees, Daiter gained extensive experience in private practice before joining LAWPRO as a claims examiner in 1997. He was appointed a claims manager in 2007 and claims director in 2009.
