Spencer Fane Britt & Browne, LLP has expanded its office in Jefferson City, Mo., with the addition of veteran attorney and administrative law and insurance law expert, Keith Wenzel as Of Counsel.
Mr. Wenzel served as the Director of the Missouri Department of Insurance under Missouri Governors Carnahan, Wilson, and Holden. As Director, Mr. Wenzel oversaw the regulation of all lines of insurance in the State and regulated all life insurance companies, health insurance companies, health maintenance organizations and health service corporations.
“Keith Wenzel brings a wealth of administrative law experience to Spencer Fane,” said firm chairman, Mike Saunders. “He will be instrumental in representing insurance companies dealing with regulatory requirements in Missouri and Kansas.” In addition, working in tandem with Joe Bednar, Mr. Wenzel will represent clients with issues before the Department of Economic Development, the Department of Natural Resources, the Office of Administration, and other state agencies.
Saunders noted expanding the Jefferson City office, which is located at 308 E. High Street is an important step for the firm. “Keith and Joe are uniquely qualified to assist our Kansas City and St. Louis clients, as well as any client doing business in the state, in legislative and administrative activities when needed.”
Wenzel received his J.D, at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law and his B.A. from Rockhurst College.
