Your legal issues don’t always fall into neat categories. You seek counsel on insurance-related transactions, litigation, and regulatory matters. We offer a holistic approach to industry-leading insurers, reinsurers, insureds, intermediaries, and their professional insurance consultants. No matter how complicated the hurdle, we help you clear it so you can move forward with confidence.
Alston & Bird’s insurance attorneys focus on the legal issues that affect insurers, reinsurers, insureds, intermediaries and their professional insurance consultants. Our approach is to bring an array of insurance-specific litigation, regulatory and transactional expertise to bear in order to achieve the most effective solution. Our clients span the breadth of commercial insurance providers, consumers, intermediaries and consultants.
We work with clients across a wide range of insurance-related issues - regulatory counseling in all product lines; policyholder litigation including coverage and policyholder class actions; mergers and acquisitions; regulatory enforcement actions; investigations and contested hearings before state regulators; agency and broker disputes; reinsurance counseling; policy and coverage contract drafting; and assisting with the presentation of insurance products and insurance programs.
Nothing says more about the depth and level of sophistication enjoyed by our insurance practice than the clients for whom we provide insurance legal services. No other insurance practice in the country can present a more outstanding client list of insurance industry leaders. After a nationwide survey of insurance industry in-house counsel by Reactions magazine, Alston & Bird was ranked among the top five U.S. insurance practices in 2005 — a critical year for the insurance industry as it grappled with such disparate issues as hurricane recovery, contingent commissions and finite reinsurance.
Our attorneys are recognized as leaders in the insurance industry and include a Fellow of the Society of Actuaries, a former in-house attorney with one of the nation’s largest life insurers as well as one of the largest multiline insurance brokers, and another who served as associate general counsel and first vice president of Liberty National Life Insurance Co., an affiliate of Torchmark Corporation.
Bringing Value to Our Clients
Our insurance practice offers a combination of experience, depth and breadth that has been independently recognized by industry leaders. One need look no further than the quality of clients we represent in our insurance practice to understand the quality of our practice.
