Robinson+Cole's Insurance Transactional and Regulatory Group is a multidisciplinary team of lawyers who represent insurance companies in a wide range of regulatory matters affecting their business. Our group includes lawyers with backgrounds in legal disciplines such as corporate, mergers and acquisitions, government investigations, market conduct, administrative law, tax, and employee benefits. The group also works closely with our government relations lobbyists on legislative drafting, reform, and public policy issues affecting specific clients and the insurance industry generally.
The Insurance Transactional and Regulatory Group represents insurers in virtually every aspect of business operations subject to government regulation. Our experience includes the following:
Our frequent contact with regulators and proven track record of results have earned us a reputation as efficient and effective regulatory counsel.
In addition to our representation of insurers in property and casualty lines, we also provide general regulatory and business counseling to managed care clients on matters unique to their business, including utilization review laws, the peer review process, Medicare, Medicaid, out-of-network reimbursement, multijurisdictional prompt pay and balance billing laws, and other operational issues faced by health insurers.
Our group also represents the Connecticut Life and Health Insurance Guaranty Association (CLHIGA) as outside general counsel. In that capacity, we have been involved with the resolution of significant issues resulting from insurer insolvencies. Our Government Relations Group counts among its clients the Connecticut Association of Health Plans.
Lawyers in the Insurance Transactional and Regulatory Group are actively involved in insurance industry groups and associations. We are regular participants in meetings of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), the Federation of Defense and Corporate Counsel (FDCC), the American Council of Life Insurers (ACLI), the National Organization of Life & Health Insurance Guaranty Associations (NOLHGA), America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), and other industry associations.
