Doug Butler joins Womble Bond Dickinson as partner

Atlanta-based Doug Butler, formerly of Moore Ingram Johnson & Steele, LLP, has joined Womble Bond Dickinson as partner in the firm’s corporate and securities group.

Butler will provide outside counsel to captive managers and owners advising on insurance regulatory matters, formations, coverage matters and claims assistance.

“Doug is highly regarded as an excellent lawyer in the captive insurance industry,” said Jamie J. Francis, leader of the Corporate & Securities group.

“His unique perspective as a former captive manager will be extremely beneficial to our clients in the corporate and securities industry, and we are excited to welcome him to the firm.”

Jeffrey K. Simpson, who leads Womble Bond Dickinson’s captive insurance practice, said: “Adding Doug to our team expands the reach of our practice in both subject matter and geography.

“He has experience with a variety of regulatory issues in multiple U.S. domiciles. As our practice expands to meet the needs of our clients, Doug is a perfect complement.”

Butler was recently interviewed by Captive Intelligence for a long read focusing on Georgia’s captive insurance law and profile as a captive domicile.
