Hitachi Data Systems' Legal and Compliance Team have been named as the Regulatory Team of the Year 2014 at the European Counsel Awards which were presented in London on Wednesday 5 March 2014.
The European Counsel Awards recognise company legal teams that excel in their roles and were presented by the International Law Office and the Association of Corporate Counsel. The organisers reviewed the legal departments of 4000 companies including Vodafone, Rio Tinto, Barclays, GlaxoSmithkline and HP.
The organisers stated that their primary aim was to reward lawyers for demonstrable achievements across the full spectrum of in-house responsibility, and not simply those who have acted on high-profile transactions. We believe HDS scored highly for a pragmatic and effective approach to anti-corruption, competition law compliance and data privacy.
Attached is a photo of the members of the Legal and Compliance Team who attended the ceremony and picked up the trophy on the night: Chris Leslie, Rosie Gleeson, Nick Boin and Don Hughes. The organisers have now shortlisted HDS for the Global Counsel Awards that will be held in New York in June.
