NEW YORK (June 29, 2012) – Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP is pleased to announce the publication of the Insurance Regulation Answer Book 2013, a high-level overview of the legal and regulatory framework governing the insurance industry in the United States published by the Practising Law Institute (PLI).

Kitchens, the 2013 edition features key updates on the complex and constantly changing area of insurance regulation.
