Richard provides a comprehensive range of insurance regulatory services to insurers, reinsurers, producers, and financial institutions dealing with licensed insurers. He is a former deputy superintendent of the New York State Insurance Department (now the New York State Department of Financial Services) and a former assistant attorney general for the state of New York, in which capacity he handled litigation for the Insurance Department among other state agencies.

Richard helps clients navigate the process of forming new insurance and reinsurance ventures, including captive insurers; advises on securing and maintaining all regulatory approvals and licenses to market and sell insurance products; and provides counsel on new liability exposures and insurance coverage issues.
