Insurance and legal services provider Carpenters Group has announced the appointment of Kevin Perkins to the position of operations manager and fraud lead for the defence team, starting this month.

With a background as a solicitor since 2009, Perkins’ career has predominantly revolved around the defendant personal injury field. His previous role in a national law firm involved overseeing a substantial insurer-client account. Notably, his skill set encompasses a broad array of responsibilities, including performance monitoring, trend analysis, ensuring service continuity, offering strategic advice to clients, and managing high-value litigated cases.

He is also renowned for holding expertise in handling cases involving suspected fraudulent elements, such as the reported case of Paul Johnson v CIS General Insurance Limited, which led to custodial sentencing for a dishonest claimant after subsequent committal proceedings in the High Court.

Sean Harris, the head of defence and large loss services at Carpenters Group, highlighted Perkins’ technical proficiency and experience, underlining his potential to aid clients in tackling daily challenges and enhance the Carpenters Group defence team.

Carpenters Group CEO Donna Richards also lauded Perkins’ addition to the team, emphasising his leadership and fraud skills, which further expand the firm’s offerings.

Elsewhere for the firm, Carpenters Group also recently announced that it had moved offices in Scotland, from 147 Blythswood Street to 10 Bothwell Street in Glasgow.
