Insurance services companies face many challenges today. At a time when company resources are being strained, compliance pressures and legal risks continue to grow.
Because the members of Lindquist & Vennum’s Insurance & Financial Services practice group include attorneys who have served as insurance regulators and in-house counsel for insurance companies, we understand the challenges our clients in this industry face. Our years of providing outside counsel to the industry give us insight into many other aspects of your work, too. Some members of our group have spent their entire careers in the financial services arena.
Lindquist & Vennum has represented the Minnesota Commerce Department as special outside counsel; guided development of holding company and demutualization legislation; helped companies sell blocks of business; assisted clients with applications for admission into Minnesota; and resolved many regulatory and compliance problems. Our attorneys have strong working relationships with state and national regulators like the Minnesota Commerce Department and the Minnesota Attorney General’s office. We have been actively engaged with local industry groups and trade organizations such as the Minnesota Insurance Federation, the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, and state guaranty associations. And we have experience beyond insurance that covers the spectrum of financial services, including securities, healthcare, and banking law.
Through many years of working in and providing counsel to the insurance industry, Lindquist & Vennum has developed the skills, knowledge, and relationships necessary to help companies achieve their objectives and protect their interests. And because our firm is smaller than most firms with comparable national practices—and therefore has lower overhead costs—we can provide responsive, client-focused service at reasonable rates.
