Earlier this year, Leaders League and Décideurs Magazine held the 6th edition of the Sommet du Droit en Entreprise (Corporate Law Summit) in digital form.

The Corporate Law Summit is an annual event in France that traditionally brings together more than 700 experts such as general counsels, risk managers, compliance officers, data protection officers, contract managers, and legaltech specialists. It is an occasion to share best practices, achievements, and attend lectures on current topics and major future issues within the legal sector.

Throughout the event, awards are given to companies that have outperformed in certain fields. From a group of nominees including Capgemini, CNIM, Thales, Gras Savoye, and Total, Sonepar won the 'Golden Prize for Insurance and Risk Management'.

Upon collecting the award, Sonepar General Counsel Olivier Catherine stated,
