Thomas Miller Americas has appointed Noreen Arralde as senior claims director in its New Jersey office. Arralde rejoins Thomas Miller Americas from Skuld, where she spent two years, serving as a Vice President, covering the New York metropolitan area. She previously worked at Thomas Miller Americas from 2012-2018, following 13 years with US litigation firm Kenny, Stearns & Zonghetti and six years as claims manager for global container shipping company Sealand.
A former litigator, Arralde has nearly three decades experience in the legal sector, and has extensive knowledge of the maritime claims space. Arralde is well-known for her expertise in the defence of US bodily injury claims, particularly in the cruise sector.
Leo Kirchner, President and CEO, Thomas Miller Americas, says: “Noreen’s return to Thomas Miller Americas is a very welcome development. It significantly strengthens our already well established US bodily injury expertise.”
Leanne O’Loughlin, Regional Director, UK P&I Club and UK Defence Club, says: “Noreen’s extensive exposure to complex cases during her previous tenure with us has been widely recognised by UK P&I Club Members. We look forward to her contribution and positive impact in maintaining and developing excellent service levels for our Members in the Americas region.”
