Our History

Johnson Lambert was formed in 1986 in the Washington, DC area by Larry Johnson and Debbie Lambert, Partners Emeriti. Prior to the formation of Johnson Lambert, Larry and Debbie were both affiliated with Ernst & Whinney (now EY), where they were active leaders in the firm’s insurance practice. As they created Johnson Lambert, their vision was to be an alternative to the then “Big-8” firms in providing audit and tax services to the insurance industry.
