Insurance defense litigation firm Cipriani & Werner appointed the regional leader of a longtime client to handle the firm’s diversity and inclusion efforts along with insurance client relationship management.

Angela Taylor began in her role as the firm’s first director of insurance client services and diversity, equity and inclusion Nov. 1 after serving for nearly 24 years as the assistant vice president and manager of enterprise legal services for Liberty Mutual Insurance’s eastern division, where Cipriani & Werner—one of the insurer’s “most trusted” outside counsel—is based.
