Clive Ellis


Managing Director, Private Clients Division

In 1995 Clive, together with Michael May, set up Ellis May with the intention of providing a personal service to clients using highly qualified and experienced Loss Adjusters and building professionals. Following the acquisition of the business by Vericlaim in 2014, Clive is Managing Director of their Private Clients Division.


Clive commenced his career in banking, joining an international loss adjuster, which specialised mainly in handling large losses for the Lloyd’s market, in 1984. He spent three years in Africa where he had exposure to mining disasters and political risks claims, together with general commercial and domestic losses. Returning to the UK, he joined Ellis and Buckle (since acquired by Cunningham Lindsey) as an Associate Director with responsibility for West London. His experience there included high profile claims involving terrorist attacks in Colindale, The City and Manchester.
