Legal 500 has selected Kate Adams, Senior Vice President and General Counsel at Honeywell, as one of the most powerful corporate legal advisers in the United States.
Adams is responsible for the legal, governmental, and security departments of Honeywell – including close to 1,000 staff – and also leads diversity efforts at the company. She is one of many prominent members of the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (a group of general counsels and law firms committed to diversity) and within the company, she sits on the steering committee of the Honeywell Women’s Council.
The Corporate Counsel 100 was selected by canvassing opinions from Legal 500’s 2.5 million in-house readers and partners at law firms across the U.S. The selection criteria is based on those corporate counsel who are changing or forming opinions within their company or industry; have developed brilliant technical solutions to complex issues; created innovative structures to ensure that the in-house function is driving the business forward; provided a diversity or business working model that other corporate counsel should follow.
