Carpenters Group appoints Kevin Perkins as Operations Manager and Fraud Lead in Defendant Department

30 October 2023

Kevin joined Carpenters Group, the insurer claims service and legal firm, in October 2023 as Operations Manager and Fraud Lead for the Defence Team.  

Since qualifying as a solicitor in 2009, Kevin has worked almost exclusively in the defendant personal injury field having joined from a national law firm where he held a role overseeing a large insurer-client account.

Kevin’s expertise is multi-faceted and involves monitoring performance and trends, ensuring continuity of service, providing strategic advice to clients as well as handling high value litigated cases. Kevin has particular experience in handling matters involving suspected fraudulent elements; he dealt with the reported case of Paul Johnson v CIS General Insurance Limited and the subsequent committal proceedings in the High Court which ultimately resulted in a custodial sentence for a dishonest claimant.

Sean Harris, Head of Defence and Large Loss Services at Carpenters Group is extremely pleased with Kevin’s appointment and is looking forward to working closely, adding that Kevin’s technical ability and experience will not only assist our clients with meeting the various challenges that they have to face on a daily basis, but will also compliment the Carpenters Group Defence team with his positive and proactive approach.

Donna Richards, CEO at Carpenters Group said we are delighted to continue to grow and develop our defence offering, and Kevin is a great addition to the team bringing with him leadership and fraud skills experience expanding further our offering.

Outside of work, Kevin is kept busy by his two children but enjoys being outdoors, following his local football team, cooking and dining out.
