Personnel note: Andrew Marcus, former insurance regulator, joins Holland & Knight government advocacy team

Florida Capitol 2 (Large)

With so many known unknowns in the regulatory markets, it can’t hurt a law firm’s governmental affairs practice to have as many former insurance regulators on staff.

That has to be part of the thinking at Holland & Knight, which on Monday announced that Andrew Marcus, a former senior attorney and deputy director with Florida’s Office of Insurance Regulation (OIR), has joined its Tallahassee office as a member of the firm’s government advocacy team.

“We are thrilled to have Andrew, a talented lawyer who is highly regarded at the OIR, join our team,” said Mark Delegal, co-chair of the firm’s government advocacy team in Florida. “Our clients will be well served by Andrew’s experience and insight as they navigate Florida’s insurance regulatory process.”

Marcus was deputy director of Life and Health Product Review and assistant general counsel at the Florida OIR from 2013 to 2016, during the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

Most recently, Marcus was a co-partner in the St. Petersburg-based firm of Marcus & Manning, P.A.

In his new position, Marcus will advise insurers, health care providers, third party administrators and other related clients in the areas of insurance, health and administrative law.

A press release from the firm states that Marcus has experience with product filings, market conduct examinations, financial examinations, and licensing and merger applications. He also served as an assistant state attorney in the Twelfth Judicial Circuit of Florida, where he litigated more than 40 jury trials.
