LONDON

Stewart Title Ltd., the underwriter for Stewart’s transactions in the United Kingdom, Europe and Australia announces the expansion of its London based executive office. The new office is located at 11 Haymarket, London. In addition to the new office space in London, Stewart moved to a larger facility in Norwich earlier in the year, giving them two bases of operation in the United Kingdom along with offices throughout Europe, including Milan, Bucharest, Warsaw and Prague.

In another move to accommodate growth in this region, Stewart announced the addition of two experienced members to their team, strengthening both their underwriting and claims divisions.

Ferky Azib joined Stewart as Claims Counsel and brings to the position a wealth of litigation experience having worked at a number of national law firms, including most latterly, Dentons. Ms. Azib is a member of the Property Litigation Association and a Committee Member for Women in Property.

Michael Sawyerr joined the team as Senior Development Underwriter. Mr. Sawyerr has more than seven years of experience as a title insurance underwriter having worked at both Legal and Contingency Limited and First Title Insurance.
