A London appeals court has ruled in favor of three London-based executives, rejecting their former New York-based employer’s attempt to sue them in a U.S. court to recover ground lost when they left in April for a rival company. The case concerns three executives, Julian Samengo-Turner, Ron Whyte and Marcus Hopkins, who were based in London while working for Guy Carpenter, a reinsurance intermediary whose parent company is Marsh & McLennan Companies, a New York-based global professional services firm. The three executives left in April to join a rival broker in London. Marsh & McLennan looked to sue the three in New York over their compensation packages, but the Court of Appeal in London said they can only be sued in courts in England, where they live and work. The ruling has important ramifications for international insurance companies and financial institutions based in the United States with offices in London, according to a lawyer at Elborne Mitchell, the London law firm that represented the three executives.
