First Insurance names new VP of legal

First Insurance Company of Hawai‘i welcomes Leslie Kop as its new VP and managing attorney, a news release has announced.

Kop worked for FICOH between 1992 and 2000 as staff counsel. She will now serve as chief trial counsel with responsibility for overall management of the company’s five-attorney Legal department.

“Kop is a respected lawyer in Hawai‘i with more than 20 years of staff counsel and private practice legal experience,” the new release said. “She previously was a partner at Fukunaga Matayoshi Hershey Ching & Kop. Before joining FICOH in 1992, she was an associate at Rush Moore Craven Sutton Morry & Beh in the firm’s Corporate and Real Estate department and in Litigation.”

In the announcement, First Insurance President and CEO Allen Uyeda stated, “Leslie is well-suited for this position. She’s familiar with First Insurance and many of our people thanks to the eight years she worked here in the ‘90s, plus she offers the experience she gained as a partner with a private firm. We look forward to the many contributions she will make to our company as a legal and defense expert and as a member of our executive team.”

Kop stated, “I’m excited to return to First Insurance and work with such a skilled and knowledgeable team of lawyers and claims adjusters… I’m honored to be able to return to First during its centennial year and have the opportunity to contribute to its success in the future.”

Kop was admitted to the Hawai‘i State Bar in 1988, the release states, and she earned a JD degree from the University of Oregon School of Law, as well as a BA degree in political science from the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa. Kop is a member of the Hawai‘i State Bar Association and American Judicature Society.
