The Tampa Bay Business Journal's Top Corporate Counsel Awards honour attorneys and general counsel who are leaders and play a key role in the success of their company or organisation. The Rising Star award honours an outstanding individual who has shown great promise and exponential potential in their first five years of practice.

Along with other honourees, Gio Laflotte will be presented with his award at an awards dinner on March 31st, 2020. 

Joining our Tampa Bay office in June 2018, Gio oversees most of Anvil’s North American legal affairs in tandem with our UK based Legal and Operations Director, Kate Scruby. Prior to joining Anvil, Gio worked at a number of litigation firms before navigating into the in-house world. Gio earned his Bachelor of Arts in Criminology from the University of Florida, and his Juris Doctorate from the University of Florida Levin College of Law.  

Commenting on the news of Gio’s award, Anvil Group’s US Managing Director, Cal Pratt stated: “I could not be more proud of Gio.  He has done a great job in supporting Kate Scruby and the legal department and it is really nice to see his talent and dedication recognised in the Tampa Bay business community.”
