A truly extraordinary appointment just came to light. On March 28, 2007 Willis Group Holdings, the global insurance broker, appointed Adam Ciongoli its General Counsel. Ciongoli will oversee legal, compliance and audit functions.
What’s extraordinary is that Ciongoli was most recently law clerk to US Supreme Court Justice Samuel A. Alito, Jr. Has there ever been another Supreme Court clerk whose next position was that of General Counsel?
To be fair, Ciongolo “has served as a special consultant to the New York City Police Department. Previously, he was Senior Vice President and General Counsel for TimeWarner Europe, and Counselor to the United States Attorney General.”
