Wiley Rein’s Kim Ashmore Selected for Inaugural ‘Break Out’ Award by Business Insurance Magazine

April 28, 2017

Washington, DC — Yesterday, Business Insurance magazine announced the winners of its inaugural “Break Out” awards, naming Wiley Rein LLP Insurance Practice partner Kimberly A. Ashmore to its list of 40 top industry professionals. Selected by a panel of senior editors, the honorees are described as “outstanding performers with up to 15 years of experience in the insurance and risk management field who are positioned to be the next generation of leaders in the sector.”

Ms. Ashmore is one of just four outside counsel who were selected for the prestigious award, which also recognizes risk managers, brokers, insurers, reinsurers, wholesalers, captive managers, and other service providers in the risk management and property/casualty insurance field. The list of winners is divided into four regions of the United States: Midwest, Northeast, South, and West.

Ms. Ashmore represents insurers in complex disputes arising under professional liability policies, with an emphasis on claims against lawyers and other professionals, including accountants, architects, engineers, insurance agents, actuaries, and real estate brokers. She also defends professionals in malpractice actions. In addition to her role as a litigator, Ms. Ashmore counsels clients and mediates complex matters on their behalf.

A profile on Ms. Ashmore will appear in Business Insurance magazine’s June 2017 issue. The honorees will be recognized at a series of regional awards events in June. Additional information can be found here.
