In-depth and firsthand insurance industry experience
Saul Ewing LLP's Insurance Practice Group is a team of attorneys well-versed in the insurance industry. Our attorneys include Constance B. Foster, a former insurance commissioner of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and Paul Hummer, whose complex civil litigation practice focuses on litigation involving insurers and reinsurers. Many of our attorneys obtained extensive industry experience working in the insurance industry. In addition to law degrees, various attorneys hold ARM, AIM, or AIC designations, another mark of their career commitment to insurance.
A knowledge base to anticipate and manage change
We advise clients on a wide range of issues, including demutualization and convergence, reinsurance, insolvencies, and market conduct and other enforcement matters. We monitor legislative, regulatory and case-law developments that will affect the insurance industry generally and our clients' businesses in particular. We apply this knowledge to help our clients develop strategic plans to meet future challenges. For example, we have anticipated and counseled clients on how the corporate accountability standards mandated by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 will broadly affect corporate governance and financial reporting by both publicly traded and nonpublic companies in the insurance industry. We regularly share such insights with clients and help clients anticipate and manage change.
A team of insurance professionals with an interdisciplinary approach
We use an interdisciplinary approach to address our clients' needs in all facets of insurance and reinsurance transactions, regulatory issues and litigation. Each of our Insurance Practice Group attorneys brings to the client's table a fundamental understanding of the insurance business, regulatory perspectives and litigation strategies to complement his or her particular legal discipline. These industry-focused attorneys form the core of client teams that may include, as needed, attorneys from other Saul Ewing practice groups and departments such as Business, Real Estate, Health Law and more than 70 attorneys in our Litigation Department. Our clients benefit from Saul Ewing's interdisciplinary approach to the resolution of complex legal challenges with our client-tailored teams of Insurance Practice Group professionals.
