Keoghs has served insurers, public sector and corporate organisations for over 40 years.
In November 2012 LDC invested for a minority 22.5% shareholding in Keoghs.
The involvement of LDC enables Keoghs to continue investing in its people, processes and technology infrastructure while providing capital for potential strategic acquisitions to add complementary services and scale to its operation.
In 2017 Keoghs exchanged contracts with Hill Dickinson to acquire its highly-regarded Insurance Business Group. The deal will see 16 Hill Dickinson partners and 400 other fee earners and business services staff based across sites in Liverpool, London and Manchester transfer to Keoghs.
The move will bolster the firm’s capacity and capability in professional and financial risk, abuse and corporate risk matters. It will also see Keoghs establish a presence in Liverpool for the first time.
In 2018 John Whittle, CEO of Keoghs announced that Keoghs had experienced an "extremely pleasing" year and the firm is enjoying continued growth across all areas of the business. For the year to 31 May 2017, Keoghs reported turnover of £67.8m compared to £58.3m during the previous 12 months. Operating profits were up from £11.3m to £15.9m, as were pre-tax profits, from £11.3m to £15.7m.
