Former Congressman Earl Pomeroy brings 26 years of regulatory and legislative experience to his present position as senior counsel at Alston & Bird LLP.
Mr. Pomeroy’s practice focuses on matters before the legislative and executive branches of government at the federal level as well as work before financial regulators at the state government level.
Mr. Pomeroy has been an influential participant in financial services regulation as it has evolved over the last quarter century. More than twenty years ago, as President of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, he advanced reforms to strengthen solvency oversight in state insurance departments which were widely adopted, substantially improving the quality of state insurance regulation.
For eight terms he was the only member of the U.S. House to have served as an Insurance Commissioner. This unique background provided the basis and credibility for Pomeroy’s active participation in regulatory reform debates held throughout his time in Congress.
Drawing upon his background as North Dakota Insurance Commissioner, President of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, nine term Member of Congress and senior member of the House Ways and Means Committee, Pomeroy’s practice areas include financial services regulation, health care policy, pensions, tax policy, energy and agriculture.
