Reynolds American Inc. has found a new way to smoke the competition — or at least the plaintiffs bar. In August the Winston-Salem, N.C., company announced that it had hired E. Julia Lambeth as its new executive vice president and general counsel. She started work in September. Lambeth, 55, also serves as executive vice president and general counsel of RAI subsidiary R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company.

Lambeth has spent 30 years in-house. In 1977 she joined E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Co. as an attorney, zeroing in on environmental matters. In 1992 she moved to Houston and became assistant GC at ConocoPhillips. Nine years later she was promoted to corporate secretary and deputy GC. From 2002 through 2006, Lambert led the integration planning team responsible for corporate governance following the ConocoPhillips merger.
