Conyers is pleased to announce the promotion of Sophia Greaves as the Head of Insurance & Reinsurance within the firm’s Bermuda corporate practice. In this role, Sophia will lead the Insurance & Reinsurance practice, leveraging her experience and expertise to drive the continued success of this key practice area.
Sophia joined Conyers in 2010 as an Associate and became a Director in 2016. Prior to joining the firm, Sophia practiced as an insurance lawyer in both London and Hong Kong. Sophia’s wealth of knowledge includes specialising in securitisations, mergers and acquisitions and (re)insurance transactions. In particular, she advises on the formation, licensing and ongoing regulatory requirements for Bermuda captives and commercial insurers. Sophia has demonstrated a track record of excellence having established a broad client base spanning a number of insurers and insurance groups.
“We are delighted to announce Sophia’s promotion as the new Head of the Bermuda Insurance & Reinsurance practice,” states Marcello Ausenda, Director and Head of the Bermuda Corporate Practice. Sophia is a generational talent – she is a market leading lawyer who has earned the confidence and trust of her clients and colleagues alike. As a natural leader there is no better person to take the helm of our leading insurance practice at this exciting time. Sophia is a most worthy successor to Charles Collis who has been instrumental in building the jurisdiction’s largest and leading insurance and reinsurance practice.”
Sophia has been recognised by pre-eminent legal directories including Chambers and Partners, Legal 500 and IFLR 1000. Sophia is committed to supporting young Bermudian lawyers. She serves as the Chair of the firm’s Legal Education Award Committee and is actively involved in the firm’s recruitment initiatives. As the first female lawyer in her new role, she is a role model to women in law and in the insurance industry.
“I am honoured to take on the role of Head of Insurance & Reinsurance at Conyers”, says Sophia. “We have a talented, deep bench of lawyers in our team who have been recognised as leading individuals in the insurance industry across areas of expertise. I am excited for us to build on our strengths as a team as we aim to continue to provide effective, commercial solutions for our clients.”
The Insurance & Reinsurance team will also continue to benefit from the counsel of Charles Collis who has, over the last 30 + years, made a significant contribution to the Bermuda insurance industry.
