Former NAIC president Huff joins Dentons
Dentons has appointed John Huff as a partner of its insurance regulatory practice in Kansas City.

Huff previously served as president of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, where he led the state regulator delegation in internationally building regulatory relationships globally.

He has over 25 years of experience, including working to increase growth in captive insurance markets and regulating over 450,000 professionals through 40 commissions.

Most recently he worked as the director of the Missouri Department of Insurance. In his role, he implemented and updated the state's solvency regime and various initiatives, such as revising credit for reinsurance allowances to increase global competition, establishing risk solvency assessment for larger insurers and initiating corporate governance oversight of insurers.

Mike McNamara, CEO of Dentons US office, said: "John Huff's substantive government background and international leadership within the insurance industry will immediately complement the extraordinary depth of our highly ranked insurance sector team."

McNamara added: "His reputation and strong professional and personal connections across the insurance industry both in the US and globally will be a tremendous asset for our clients."
