European Legal team wins accolade at 2019 European Counsel Awards

News Release

2019 European Counsel Awards

Congratulations go to our European Legal team for winning an accolade at the 2019 European Counsel Awards. At the ceremony held in March, Assurant came out on top in the Regulatory Financial Services category against tough competition from AIG, Barclays, Citibank, Mapfre and TransferWise. The European Counsel Awards (part of the Global Counsel Awards) are hosted by Lexology in association with ACC (Association of Corporate Counsel) and acknowledge the excellent work undertaken by corporate in-house legal teams and individuals.

Representing Assurant on the night were European Legal Director, Kerry Compton, along with colleagues Anita Mottershead and Claire Geoffroy from the European legal team. Kerry said:  “It was a fantastic surprise to win against such strong competition. It was humbling to be on a list with such prestigious competition but to win is a fantastic achievement for the team. A great accolade not just for the European Legal Team but for Assurant and its Legal Teams, both Domestic and International. We have had great support from internal colleagues and external contacts, so a huge thank you to everyone who has supported and worked with us.”

Winners are also automatically shortlisted for the Global Counsel Awards in June, which is great news!

More than 4,000 individual nominations from corporate counsel and law firm partners globally make the awards unique in clearly identifying both teams and individuals who excel in their roles.

Congratulations again to our European Legal Team!
