WASHINGTON, D.C, December 11, 2018 — Law360 has recognized Andrew Kay, a member in Cozen O’Connor’s business litigation group based in Washington, D.C., as a 2018 MVP in the Insurance practice area. Each year, Law360 selects a group of attorneys who “have distinguished themselves from their peers over the past year through high-stakes litigation, record-breaking deals, and complex global matters.”
In its profile, Law360 highlighted Andrew’s litigation victories on behalf of a life insurer against federal and state regulators, challenging the validity of regulations they had adopted: (1) the package of regulations adopted by the U.S. Department of Labor known as the Fiduciary Rule, and (2) regulations adopted by the Office of California State Controller in connection with life insurers’ reporting and escheatment of unclaimed property. In both cases, Andrew secured rulings that enjoined the regulators’ enforcement of regulations that impacted all life insurers and, in the case of the Fiduciary Rule, other financial institutions with retirement investment businesses.
Andrew Kay focuses his practice on complex commercial litigation, including regulatory litigation, class action defense, commercial plaintiff lawsuits, and securities and M&A litigation. Andrew has successfully litigated a wide range of matters in a broad range of industries, including insurance, mortgage lending, chemicals, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, telecommunications equipment, computer software, and energy.
