Legal Section

The Legal Section is the Division’s in-house legal counsel, providing legal advice to the Commissioner and other sections of the Division. The Legal Section reviews the results of examinations, investigations, and administrative action for compliance with the Insurance Code, found under Nevada Revised Statutes Title 57. On behalf of the Division, the Legal Section also represents the Division in contested cases. In addition to providing legal advice, review, and support, Division counsel draft legal opinions, proposed legislation, and regulations. Division counsel may be appointed as hearing officers for matters, such as hearings of contested cases, mergers, regulations, and informal meetings with troubled self-insured employers. 


The Legal Section is not permitted to provide legal advice outside of the Division of Insurance.
