Providing financial security for individuals, businesses, and organizations, the insurance industry has long served as a cornerstone of the United States economy. However, as market forces and regulatory oversight continue to evolve at a rapid pace, insurers are finding they must ensure that future business decisions and strategies will maintain this important economic safeguard.
As one of ALFA International’s most active Practice Groups, serving clients in every state and several non-U.S. jurisdictions, the ALFA International Insurance Practice Group provides a critical blend of broad industry experience and local knowledge. Our attorneys deliver cost-effective, coordinated legal services to insurers writing health, accident, life, disability, long-term care, and property and casualty coverages.
ALFA Insurance attorneys regularly draw on extensive financial, regulatory, business, and legal backgrounds to help insurers develop proactive solutions to emerging challenges and to take full advantage of new opportunities. Likewise, our lawyers work closely with other ALFA International Practice Groups to provide comprehensive legal services that support our clients’ short- and long-term objectives.
