Welcome to the latest edition of the Lit Daily’s In-House Litigation Leaders series where we focus on lawyers making the hiring decisions, shaping the strategies and managing the caseloads at some of the nation’s largest and most innovative companies. 

Meet Stephen Kyriacou Jr., who is senior vice president and senior lawyer at Aon Litigation Risk and Special Opportunities Groups, a pioneer in the market for litigation risk insurance — products designed to help protect businesses from catastrophic judgments and preserve the benefits of favorable ones. (For a full primer on litigation risk insurance and two of the primary forms it takes — adverse judgment insurance and judgment preservation insurance — check out this primer recently published by Kyriacou and his colleague Stephen Davidson, a former partner at DLA Piper.)
