(ATLANTA) January 27, 2011 – Locke Lord Bissell & Liddell Atlanta Partner Brian T. Casey has been named to the prestigious national list of the 100 Most Powerful People in the Insurance Industry in North America for 2011, giving him an elite spot on “The Insurance Dream Team” for the sixth time. The list, produced by Insurance Broadcasting for eight years, identifies the top insurance professionals around the country and names them in more than 20 categories. Casey is the only attorney recognized in the Insurance Law category.
He joins a select group that includes CEOs and professionals from some of the most well-known and respected companies and trade associations in the insurance industry, including the CEOs of The Harford and Swiss Re. The list’s publishers refer to the top 100 as those with the most resources available and “the most ability to successfully accomplish any goal or directive of the insurance industry.”
Casey and his colleagues in the top 100 are chosen based on “the confidence and faith others have in them, and their power is viewed by them as a guardianship, duty and charge to serve others,” according to Insurance Broadcasting publishers.
Casey writes and speaks frequently on transactional and regulatory matters and trends that affect the insurance industry. His practice focuses on corporate; mergers and acquisitions, corporate and structured insurance products finance and other transactional matters; and multi-state regulatory matters for corporate clients in the insurance, financial services and health care industries. His clients include insurance companies, insurance holding companies, managing general agents and insurance agencies, third party and claims administrators, banks and other financial institutions, investment banks and reinsurance companies. Casey earned his law degree from The Ohio State University College of Law and his Master of Laws in Taxation from Emory University Law School.
