Standard Club has appointed Gina Venezia as new General Counsel in their New York office.
Venezia joins Standard Club after more than 20 years at Freehill Hogan & Mahar in New York, where the Club said that she had built an excellent reputation both in the USA and internationally as an expert in maritime law issues.
Becky Hamra, President / Regional Claims Director New York, said that “we are excited to have Gina Venezia join the team. Gina is well-regarded for her commerciality and dedication to clients. Gina coming on board will strengthen the team’s in-house legal and dispute resolution services.”
Venezia replaces LeRoy Lambert, who retired from the club in February after many years’ service. LeRoy was General Counsel for the last three years, having served as President and Regional Claims Director since 2009.
Eddy Morland, head of the International Division, said that “on behalf of everyone at the Standard Club and Charles Taylor, I would like to thank LeRoy for his dedication and service to the club over the past 12 years. He has played a decisive role in growing the New York office and the team have always appreciated his hands-on and patient approach when resolving difficult claims. We wish him well in his retirement and are delighted to welcome Gina Venezia to the team.”
