McLarens performs claims management, loss adjusting, pre-risk and damage surveying, and auditing services for companies throughout the world.

The firms see the deal as a strategic fit, aligning with McLarens’ strategy to strengthen technical services and multi-disciplinary consulting capabilities in natural resources verticals. The combination will result in increased market presence especially in the oil and energy sector.

LWI will merge with McLarens’ Natural Resources specialties services and will retain its head office in London. The combined group will continue to conduct business under LWI’s brand and be led by Joe McMahon, chairman of LWI.

Matthew LeBrun will join the group and head Natural Resources in the Americas – a key area planned for expansion – and report directly to McMahon.
