CONSHOHOCKEN, PA--(Marketwired - Nov 6, 2015) - AlliedBarton Security Services, the industry's premier provider of highly trained security personnel, is proud to announce that the company's legal team, led by David Buckman, was named to the GC Powerlist, a publication from The Legal 500, which recognizes corporate counsel who are driving the legal business forward.

"The legal team at AlliedBarton has not only led significant internal organizational change but has made a notable impact on the wider industry," reports the GC Powerlist. "In 2014, the team made headlines with its strategic response to the Affordable Care Act. Meeting the Act head-on, the legal team planned and led a benefits strategy that went on to inspire similar responses across the industry."

"In an industry where our employees are at the center of everything we do, we need highly talented, innovative and dedicated professionals throughout our infrastructure, supporting those who are the face of the organization," said David Buckman, Executive Vice President and General Counsel, AlliedBarton. "The legal team is an important part of that support and their strategic, employee- and customer-centric approach is commendable."

GC Powerlist also singled out Vice Presidents and Deputy General Counsels Michael Meehan, Deborah Pecci and Nancy Peterson for their leadership and contributions.

Buckman and his team take on responsibilities that stretch beyond those of a traditional legal function. Aside from legal and compliance matters, responsibilities include labor relations, risk management and safety, and licensing.

Buckman has been active in developing the company's leadership brand. "Our leadership philosophy is based on the ideal that leaders have a responsibility to ensure the engagement and success of their team members," Buckman said. "We encourage self-development and participation in associations and training. We recognize success and extra effort."
