New Partner and Board Director Appointment, Griffiths & Armour Professional Risks

Griffiths & Armour is pleased to announce that Craig Roberts, has been appointed as Partner and also Director of Griffiths & Armour (Holdings) Limited following FCA regulatory approval.

Joining Griffiths & Armour in 2005, Craig advises firms who are responsible for designing and constructing the built environment on their professional risk exposures and what to do about them. His advisory work has seen him actively involved with a broad spectrum of client interests – from our largest international clients to institutional SME professions forums. As an Associate of the Chartered Insurance Institute (ACII) with a Bachelor of Law degree from the University of Aberystwyth, Craig joined the business after graduation, developing a comprehensive understanding of the insurance market, with particular focus on Professional Indemnity.

Project and risk management responsibilities have seen Craig involved in many collaborative initiatives on behalf of our clients. With board responsibility for our risk management and client education work, Craig regularly writes on subjects concerning PI insurance and construction and is an acknowledged authority on today’s risk exposures facing the construction professions. As the principal author of Griffiths & Armour’s most recent risk education publications, ‘A Brave New World: Navigating Future Challenges‘, and ‘Constructing Change: Evolving The Status Quo or Time to Reset?’, Craig has provided a wider view of the market challenges facing construction consultants.

This has led Craig into regular liaison with Government and trade bodies on some of the big challenges facing this sector, applying his unique insight to many of the legal and operational challenges faced by our construction clients. Most recently this has included active involvement at the highest levels in industry lobbying on fire safety and inter-related building quality issues.

Since joining Griffiths & Armour, my career within the business has evolved enormously and to now be appointed to the Board is a real honour.
