All such adjusters must maintain records of receiving this training on an annual basis. 

This 90-minute market briefing training session is designed to provide the required training, covering all aspects of the regulations, and will provide certification* confirming each individual’s attendance. 

We will use case studies to demonstrate how various aspects of the regulations are implemented and provide time to ask questions.

Our Speaker:

Dan Brown
represents insurance companies, start-ups, agents, brokers and other stakeholders in all aspects of the admitted, exempt and surplus lines insurance markets in the United States.  Dan is the outside general counsel to the California Surplus Line Association.

He advises on how to comply with various state laws in placing business; early-stage and developed insurtech entities on regulatory and corporate issues; insureds on exempt and specialty lines; producers on licensing, placement and premium tax issues, including digitization of the process; and insureds on coverage and placement issues. In addition, Dan supports London market participants on how to comply with US insurance laws, either by becoming admitted insurers or by using a variety of methods of covering US risks without being licensed.

Dan presents trainings on California’s Fair Claims Handling regulations to enable licensed producers and claims handlers to comply with all aspects of the regulations, including annual training requirements. He also helps clients draft, amend, lobby for or seek department clarification regarding statutes or regulations affecting their businesses.

Insurers and producers looking at affiliate transactions seek Dan’s counsel on preparing the necessary applications and obtaining approvals from departments of insurance. He advises on pre-transaction strategies, preparation of necessary corporate documents and agreements, and execution of the application process. Dan also advises clients on information privacy and restrictions on sharing personal, non-public information with affiliates and non-affiliates.
