Invested in Your Success

The insurance industry is built on risk and return. Johnson Lambert provides audit, tax, and consulting services to 500+ insurance clients, giving them the information needed to make critical business decisions to better monitor their risk and return.

Industry involvement is important to us and the clients we serve. We are active in shaping accounting and financial trends, tax laws, industry regulations, and compliance requirements affecting the insurance industry. We use this expertise to share best practices with our clients and to educate our staff of all levels to have the knowledge and industry familiarity that enables efficient and client service-focused services. Our team members consider themselves insurance professionals as much as they consider themselves accountants and consultants.


Services for Insurance Entities

Through working with hundreds of insurance entities and our immersion in all aspects of the industry, we add value to our clients in efficient engagements that do not compromise on knowledge sharing, best practice advising, and tailored synergistic and communicative approaches.

Audit and Assurance Services

Our audit and assurance services for insurers include but are not limited to: financial statement audit; reviews; accounting advisory services; SEC compliance and reporting; agreed upon procedures; and SOC 1, 2, 3, +, and Cybersecurity SOC.

Our team understands the complexities and the integration of statutory and insurance GAAP standards that govern your organization. Our audit practice is built on the highest quality standards and open, ongoing dialogue. It is not overcomplicated with unnecessary bureaucracy, while still providing access to a depth and breadth of insurance-focused resources that build trust and add value.
