Insurance partner returns to Littlejohn - 2013-01-21

Littlejohn today welcomes John Perry back to the firm as a partner in our insurance division following a period overseas.

John originally joined Littlejohn as a manager in 2006 and became a partner in 2008. In January 2011 John and his young family relocated to New Zealand and he has spent the past two years working in the financial services division of one of the Big 4 accountancy firms.

"New Zealand has provided me with some wonderful experiences, both personally and professionally,” says John. “New Zealand's insurance market has undergone a period of significant change and development in the past couple of years. During my time in the country, the industry, and the population as a whole, has had to deal with the devastating impacts of the Canterbury earthquakes, the likes of which had never been seen before. In addition, whilst dealing with the commercial, technical and emotional challenges of the earthquakes, New Zealand's Insurers have implemented the requirements of a new prudential regulatory regime. Certainly interesting times, but I am delighted to have returned to the UK and the buzz of the London market. Being able to return to Littlejohn is a real honour.”

Littlejohn's insurance division, which specialises in advising the London market, currently comprises five dedicated partners, including leading insurance industry authority, Carmine Papa, and Neil Coulson who sits on the ICAEW insurance committee and ICAEW and Lloyd's working parties on auditing, insurance accounting standards and Solvency II. John's arrival brings the number of partners to six.

Paul Hopper, Littlejohn's managing partner said, “We continue to grow our insurance practice and to provide a wealth of expertise to the London and wider UK market. John returns with an expanded knowledge of the insurance market in the international context. We are delighted to have him back.”
