Stephen J. Paris, J.D., CPCU, CLU Senior Vice President and General Counsel
As Senior Vice President and General Counsel of Lexington Insurance Company, Stephen J. Paris brings a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to his role. "I think of Lexington primarily as a market leader and when you're a market leader, you need to be persistent, but patient, in order to drive the industry," he says. In addition to supporting the legal needs of Lexington's four main business units and various departments, Steve's team of experienced and talented lawyers and staff provides support for the company's regulatory and transactional requirements, as well as the legal needs of its reinsurance book. They are also responsible for the company's policy and endorsement drafting under the unique requirements of a surplus lines carrier. Lexington's claims council also reports to Steve's department. "Our surplus lines status makes us exceedingly innovative from a legal point of view because we can respond quickly to different policy wordings to cover our client's unique exposures," he maintains.
Prior to joining Lexington Insurance Company in July 2000, Steve spent thirty-seven years at Morrison Mahoney, LLP, a Boston-based law firm specializing in all aspects of insurance and liability law. He joined Morrison Mahoney in 1963, becoming a partner in 1968, managing partner in 1985, and of Counsel in 1998.
Steve is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts Amherst (1960) and the Boston College Law School (1963) where he was an Editor of the Law Review and Student Editor-in-Chief of The Annual Survey of Massachusetts Law. Among his many qualifications, Steve holds both the Chartered Property & Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) and Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) designations. He has been active in The CPCU Society having served it in a variety of capacities including President of its Boston Chapter and its National Society. He is also a Gold Club Member and a Past Term Trustee of the CPCU - Harry J. Loman Foundation.
Steve also has deep ties with the industry, having served as an instructor of law and insurance courses for over twenty-five years. A Past Chairman of the Insurance Institute of Northeastern University, he also is a Past President, current Trustee, and Member of the Executive Committee of the Insurance Library Association of Boston. A Life Fellow of the Massachusetts Bar Foundation, Steve was also a member of the Board of Overseers of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court Historical Society. He also served on the Board of Directors of the American States Insurance Companies from 1980 until it was acquired by Safeco Insurance Company in 1998.
Steve's additional accomplishments include his past service as President of the Defense Research Institute (DRI), an association of over 24,000 insurance and defense attorneys and past membership roles at the Federation of Defense and Corporate Counsel and the International Association of Defense Counsel. He is a founder and a Past President of the Massachusetts Defense Lawyers Association and has served on several committees of the Tort and Insurance Practice Section (TIPS) of the American Bar Association.
Having lectured extensively on a variety of insurance and law topics throughout the United States, the United Kingdom, and Europe, Steve is the author of numerous articles on a variety of insurance and legal topics and is co-author of a book on business interruption insurance.
While still dreaming of being able to just once play a round of his normal golf game, Steve admits his career takes priority over his free time. In talking about the various leadership positions he has held in the legal and insurance communities over the years, he notes "I have always been and still am passionate about what I do and the opportunity to be able to pay something back is one that I highly value ."
