Last Updated: 16 June 2017

Global law firm Clyde & Co has today announced the appointment of Jonathan Wyatt as Partner in its insurance practice in Perth, Western Australia.

Jonathan joins from Sparke Helmore where he was also a Partner. Jonathan grew up in Hong Kong, qualified in London before returning to Hong Kong where he worked at Clyde & Co. Since 2000 he has developed a practice in Perth and a loyal following. Jonathan's practice is primarily professional indemnity, directors' and officers' (D&O), general liability and marine.

He advises insurers, local and state governments (including their councillors and officers), directors and other professionals on professional indemnity, and D&O insurance issues. He also advises on indemnity and general liability, employment practices liability and property claims, and represents clients when cases proceed to litigation in the Federal Court of Australia and Supreme Court of Western Australia.

He also works with national and international insurers and brokers in the professional indemnity, D&O, property, public liability and marine practice areas, as well as ship owners, charterers, ship brokers, ship-managers, exporters and freight forwarders.

Commenting on the move to Clyde & Co Jonathan says: "I'm delighted to be joining a firm that matches my practice areas so coherently. Clyde & Co has a world-renowned reputation for insurance and marine-related matters. I am familiar with the firm's culture and ethos having spent several formative years at the firm's Hong Kong office and look forward to working again with former colleagues across the firm's global operations."

Jonathan is the second partner announcement for the Perth office in as many months. Tim Searle was recently promoted to the partnership on 1 May and also specialises in insurance.

Jonathan is being joined by special counsel Paul Graham and two senior associates, Trent O'Neill and Alen Sinanovic, all from Sparke Helmore.
