Conyers Dill & Pearman appointed Charles Collis as head of the firm’s London office effective today as the firm continues to build its practice for clients across London and Europe.
Collis has relocated to London from the company’s Bermuda office, where he has been a senior member of the insurance practice for several years. He assumes the head of London role from Christopher Johnson-Gilbert, who will take on a role as Counsel.
"Charles is a pre-eminent and thoughtful leader who is ideally suited to play a key role in the ongoing growth of our London office as we advance our presence across Europe," John Collis, chairman of Conyers, said. "Our London office is of great strategic importance, and Charles’ expertise, network and substantial relationships deepen our existing strengths."
