American Express (Amex) has appointed Carol Cockshort as its new managing counsel for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
Cockshort, currently Amex’s regional managing counsel for Latin America, is replacing Mark Chambers, who left the company in October to join Royal & Sun-Alliance as general counsel and group company secretary.
It is unclear what impact, if any, the appointment will have on Amex’s external advisers. Under Chambers, the bulk of the company’s legal work was handled in-house.
Former Slaughter and May lawyer Chambers was instrumental in Amex’s decision to instruct Slaughters in favour of Linklaters on its £340m Zurich Financial Services acquisition. Amex also has relationships with CMS Cam-eron McKenna and Glovers.
Cockshort will move from Miami to London and report to New York-based managing counsel Nick Kourides.
