Raffi Kodikian, Founders Professional
Vice president and LPL practice leader
Specialty: Lawyers' professional liability
Raffi Kodikian began his insurance career in 2004, starting as an administrative assistant and office manager for a professional liability wholesale brokerage. Soon he was broking his own accounts, with a focus on lawyers’ professional liability. Before long, LPL became the cornerstone of Kodikian’s book, and since that time, he has placed coverage for firms of all sizes and areas of practice while expanding his focus to include employment practices liability and cyber liability for law firms.
In 2017, Kodikian joined Founders Professional as an LPL practice leader, helping the brokerage expand into the Western US and become a national wholesale operation. “I feel very lucky to have found this industry and the role I play in it,” he says. “I strive every day to do right by my clients and be an excellent partner to my carriers, well aware that if I don’t bring my A game to either relationship, the other will suffer as a result.”
