Butler Snow is the 2021 recipient of the U.S. Captive Review Award for Legal Services. A new category this year, the Legal Services award recognizes contributions to the captive market through legal expertise and innovation, strategic vision and business winning client care.

Butler Snow’s Captive Insurance practice, led by attorney Benjamin Arthur Whitehouse, has established an ongoing, leadership role in the captives market, working with industry service providers and entrepreneurs to support the formation and growth of captive insurance companies. Butler Snow’s unique captive insurance, tax, and government leadership experience helps our clients successfully navigate complex captive insurance matters.

“I could not be more proud to work with the team at Butler Snow and I applaud the entire firm’s commitment to the captive insurance industry,” said Whitehouse. “In three years, we have built a robust captive insurance regulatory practice alongside our litigation team and it is humbling to see our work receive this prestigious industry recognition.”

Whitehouse served as supervising attorney and assistant general counsel for insurance for the Tennessee Department of Commerce & Insurance. He provided legal advice on the regulation and formation of new captive insurance companies based in Tennessee and was responsible for drafting legislation, administrative rules and policy advice on proposed statutory and regulatory changes governing captive insurance companies in Tennessee.
