Augusta appoints General Counsel

RELATED TOPICS​

Augusta has appointed Frances Coats as General Counsel, based in London.

Coats joins from diversified insurance business The Ardonagh Group, where, as Chief Counsel, she managed the Corporate and Commercial legal needs of the group. Coats was named as Legal 500 In-House Insurance Individual of the Year 2019, Legal Business’ Rising Star In-House Counsel of the Year 2019 and was listed in The Lawyer’s Hot 100 2019.
 
Coats’ recruitment is a further addition to Augusta’s management group following the arrivals of Proskauer’s Director of Professional Resources Polly Bahl as Chief Operating Officer (COO) and FTI Consulting Managing Director Leor Franks as Chief Marketing Officer (CMO). These additions reflect Augusta’s continued growth and investment in professional functions to support the increasing demand for dispute and litigation funding.
 
Louis Young, Managing Director at Augusta, says: “We’re pleased to welcome Frances to Augusta. With her deep experience of financial services in-house legal management, Frances will play an important role in advising on the next phase of our growth.”
 
Coats says: “I’m delighted to be joining leading litigation funder Augusta. As the business continues to grow, entering new markets and forming strong strategic client relationships, I’m looking forward to supporting Augusta’s management team in the UK and internationally”.
