Our Story

Lockton is a specialist commercial and professional services insurance broker with 10 UK offices, including Edinburgh and Glasgow. Lockton is the the world's largest privately owned global insurance broker. From small beginnings in Kansas City in 1966 Lockton has become a leading broker worldwide. We have achieved extraordinary year on year growth as a result of our relentless focus on client service. Our flat corporate structure and private ownership mean that we can reinvest more of our income in serving our clients and focus better on client service: from the chairman of Lockton down, almost all of our Associates have direct client engagement.

In the UK we have a particular focus on risk and insurance solutions for Professional clients. In addition to our extensive Solicitor client-base, we run insurance schemes for Accountants, Surveyors, IFAs, and Architects across the whole of the UK.
