TRIPP SCOTT’S STEPHANIE ALEXANDER AND BRADY COBB WIN GROUNDBREAKING APPEAL FOR THE LIFE INSURANCE SETTLEMENT ASSOCIATION

Appeal upholds May 2009 ruling

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., April 24, 2010 – Tripp Scott today announced that Stephanie Alexander, director, and Brady Cobb, associate, recently won an appeal in Florida on behalf of its client, Life Insurance Settlement Association (LISA).

The appeal upheld a ruling from May 2009 that found that Florida insurance regulators overstepped their authority in seeking transaction information from other states.  In that case, the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation had wanted to create a rule, 690-204.030, that would have required viatical insurance settlement providers to file voluminous and private financial and business information.  The rule was ultimately found an impermissible exercise of legislative authority and therefore invalid.

The Florida Supreme Court Expands Rights of Biological Parents

 An op-ed by Tripp Scott's Douglas Reynolds and Henny Shomar. As published in the DBR.

Connor Perkins knew he was the father. He was there when his girlfriend Treneka Simmonds gave birth to their child in February 2013. He took the child to doctor’s appointments, enrolled the child in daycare, voluntarily paid child support and was referred to as “daddy” by the child. Perkins claimed that he was not aware that the mother was in an intact marriage, which resulted in him being denied parental rights with the child by the Broward Circuit Court.

Deeper Roots, Expanded Reach

The law firm of May, Meacham & Davell PA has moved six attorneys and staff to join the Tripp Scott team.

A merger was not on the radar for either firm. Tripp Scott has focused on organic growth by adding one attorney at a time. May, Meacham & Davell (MMDPA) had declined offers before.
