He remains active in the formation and ongoing representation of captives and risk retention groups and has been a speaker on those subjects locally, nationally, and internationally. Mr. Yoshida’s captive insurance and insurance regulatory experience includes matters relating to formation and ongoing operational issues, redomestication, conversion, liquidation, coverage matters, policy drafting, reinsurance, reinsurance trusts, and corporate governance.
