Morris, Manning & Martin Attorney Becomes Congressional Consultant on Insurance Issues

October 3, 2001

S. Roy Woodall, Jr. has joined the Library of Congress’ Congressional Research Service (CRS), becoming a consultant on insurance issues before Congress.

Woodall has held various insurance, legal, regulatory and industry positions since 1961, including Commissioner of Insurance in Kentucky, an insurance company and trade association executive, and a practicing attorney specializing in insurance and finance, mergers and acquisitions and regulatory law.

He leaves his current position as an attorney of counsel in the Washington, D.C., office of Atlanta-based law firm Morris, Manning & Martin to assume his new duties at CRS.

“Part of my job will be to consult on insurance issues with the Capitol Hill staff and members of Congress,” Woodall stated. “I’ve been involved in insurance for 40 years, and this just brings it all together.”

Woodall has been Commissioner of Insurance in Kentucky; president/rehabilitator of three life insurers; resident of the National Association of Life Companies and Vice President of the American Council of Life Insurance. Rather than retire, he joined Morris, Manning & Martin, which he now leaves to become a CRS consultant.

Morris, Manning & Martin, LLP ( ) is involved in commercial transactional and litigation practice. The firm enjoys national prominence for its role in the technology, real estate, healthcare, corporate financial/securities and insurance industries. In 1999, the firm handled more IPOs than any other firm in the southeast, and was 9th in the nation when ranked by dollars raised. It also facilitated more than $580 million of financing for its clients during 2000, including 9 of the top 25 venture capital deals in the Southeast, and represented clients in mergers and acquisitions worth more than $7 billion.
