O’Loughlin heads up Standard Club’s New York office

Jan 12 2018

The Standard Club has announced personnel changes at its New York office.

Leanne O’Loughlin has been appointed president/regional director of Charles Taylor P&I Management (Americas), succeeding LeRoy Lambert, who has assumed the role of General Counsel. 


She brings a wealth of experience to this role, having joined The Standard Club’s London office in 2010, before transferring to New York in 2013. She began her legal career as a commercial and civil solicitor and is now legally qualified in England & Wales, Ireland and New York.


Lambert joined The Standard Club in 2009 after 25 years in private practice, latterly as a partner with Blank Rome. He has vast experience in all areas of maritime law, including US Jones Act and charterparty and bill of lading disputes. He is the first General Counsel to be appointed to the New York office, and will enhance the club’s in-house capabilities, particularly with regard to the management of complex US claims and dispute resolution, the club said. 


Lambert commented, “This is a great move for all concerned and demonstrates the club’s long-term commitment to the Americas. I look forward very much to refocusing my time and energy on claims and supporting Leanne and the New York team in my new role.”


Commenting on the appointments, Eddy Morland, head of the Club’s UK & Americas division, said: “The US and Canada are key areas for The Standard Club and these appointments demonstrate our ongoing commitment to the region and will enable the team to offer a more specific in house legal and dispute resolution service.”
