15 Sep 2021

BLM EDI Steering Group member and Partner, Paula Jefferson has been appointed to join a new Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) Board set up by the Forum of Insurance Lawyers (FOIL).

According to FOIL, the ESG Board has been created with three key objectives in mind: to help FOIL members create the right culture and values for a modern law firm; to align with the insurance industry’s culture and values; and to help relationships between member law firms and their instructing principals according to modern standards.

Commenting on her appointment, Paula said: “I am especially passionate about this position, not only because of my role and interest relating to ESG at BLM, but because I truly believe that we must come together as an industry to promote inclusivity and diversity alongside environmentally sustainable business practices.”

Paula will be joined by lead partners at other major insurance firms, as well as FOIL CEO Laurence Besemer and Mark Huxley from Huxley Advisory.
