Mark Robinson, M&R’s co-founder and leader of the firm’s Regulatory Practice Group, is an insurance industry specialist who primarily represents retail brokers and agents in all aspects of their businesses. A recognized authority on regulatory issues that impact his client base, Mark’s multistate practice runs the gamut from complex mergers and acquisitions of brokerages to compliance matters, and most everything in between.
In addition to brokers and agents, Mark is also counsel for several insurance premium financing companies in connection with their business operations. Likewise, his advice is increasingly sought after by tech companies pushing to infiltrate – and disrupt – the insurance industry with innovative applications and systems to offer policies.
No matter the client, Mark’s deep understanding of regulatory laws and industry norms and relationships within various Departments of Insurance make him a go-to attorney in a wide range of matters (both domestic and international). Be it the formation of insurance brokerages, the purchase and sale of agencies, licensing, compliance, DOI investigations, market conduct examinations, the creation of producer agreements, or employment-related issues, his expertise is in high demand. Indeed, by virtue of his know-how and standing within the insurance industry and broker/agent community, M&R’s Insurance Regulatory and Administrative Department is considered amongst the most reputable in the United States.
Mark has played an essential role in M&R’s success and growth. He is an active member of the firm’s Executive Committee; and Diversity, Multiculturalism & Inclusion Committee. In addition, Mark is a regular contributor to industry publications (the Insurance Journal and Agenda, among others) and a frequent lecturer who has spoken to the American Agents Alliance, the Brokers Insurance Group, the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of California, and the California Insurance Wholesalers Association, to name a few.
