Kym Kochis counsels insurers on a wide range of litigation and corporate governance matters and advises clients facing government inquiries and investigations. Her extensive knowledge of the insurance industry provides for deft representation of insurers opposing complex class action litigation. She regularly handles matters involving unfair trade practices, consumer fraud, antitrust, ERISA and policy coverage issues, as well as complex breach of contract and tort claims.

Kym also counsels clients confronted with investigations by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, U.S. Attorney Offices, Departments of Insurance and Offices of State Attorneys General. Matters of such investigations include Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) requirements, money laundering, finite reinsurance, market timing/late trading, contingent compensation, “pay-to-play” arrangements and various compliance-related issues.

In tune with emerging issues affecting the industry, Kym regularly authors publications about autonomous vehicles and electronic transactions, as well as insurance business practices and class action defense. Kym joined Sutherland from an international law firm in New York, where she was a partner and co-chair of the insurance litigation and regulatory practice. She previously was an attorney at Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP.

Earlier in her career, Kym gained significant experience in the London Market during a secondment with a leading Lloyd’s of London syndicate. There, she was responsible for all aspects of the syndicate's major claims, which included directors and officers (D&O), professional liability, property and marine claims. Her duties also involved providing U.S. compliance and regulatory advice, responding to all Department of Insurance inquiries and collaborating with the syndicate’s underwriters to develop U.S. policy wording.
