June 23, 2017
The Global Counsel Awards, given by Lexology and the International Law Office, with support of the Association of Corporate Counsel, recognizes the “excellent” work completed by corporate in-house legal teams and individuals. The awards honor those with “demonstrable achievements across the full spectrum of in-house responsibility, and not simply those who have acted on high-profile transactions.” Farzaneh, recognized as the “Compliance Innovator of the Year," was acknowledged for her effective communication skills, legal understanding, commercial awareness, and management skills, as well as the depth and strength of her team.
Lexology and the Association of Corporate Counsel conducted an in-depth analysis of more than 4,000 nominations. Those chosen were deemed to excel in their specific fields.
Farzaneh is responsible for Honeywell's global anti-corruption program.

To make our compliance policies more accessible and user friendly, she launched the Gifts and Hospitality App and the Leading with Integrity training videos in multiple languages using Honeywell User Experience principles.
In 2008, Farzaneh joined Honeywell as General Counsel for the Middle East, based in Dubai. She moved to Washington, DC in 2013 to take her current role.
