Insurance partner has nearly 20 years of London litigation experience
London, October 17, 2016 – Crowell & Moring LLP is pleased to announce that partner Jack Thomas, an English qualified solicitor with nearly 20 years of London litigation experience, has been named managing partner of the firm’s London office.
Thomas has considerable experience representing London-based insurance companies and other clients in the United Kingdom. In addition to being a member of the Insurance/Reinsurance Group, he is a part of the Commercial Litigation and International Dispute Resolution groups.
“We are pleased that Jack will lead our London office,” Crowell & Moring chair Angela B. Styles said. “London is one of the world's financial capitals and a gateway into markets across Europe. Jack’s understanding of the London market will help bridge our London capabilities to our client base in the United States.”
“Through the London office, we want to leverage Crowell & Moring’s strengths in insurance/reinsurance, international disputes, sanctions/anti-money laundering, and corporate,” Thomas said. “We have a talented group of London lawyers who are well positioned to do just that. I am excited to lead that effort.”
Thomas joined Crowell & Moring as a partner in 2009, and was previously a partner at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP. Throughout his career, he has amassed significant experience handling disputes with parallel proceedings abroad and has represented a broad spectrum of multi-national clients. He has represented London market insurers involving coverage issues in professional liability matters, including in the architects and engineers, health care, legal malpractice, and technology and media sectors.
Thomas assumes the position held by Adrian Jones, who became office managing partner after joining the firm in 2014. As a partner in the International Dispute Resolution Group, Jones will continue to play a key role in further establishing the firm’s London presence for international disputes.
“I want to thank Adrian for his service to the firm,” Styles said. “His leadership remains invaluable in helping our International Dispute Resolution Group make further in-roads in London and across Europe.”
