With two decades of experience in life, property, casualty, and workers compensation insurance matters, Michael J. Murphy is a skilled New York insurance legislative and regulatory attorney.

Michael has been involved in nearly every noteworthy insurance matter that has come before the New York State Legislature and the New York State Department of Financial Services, including most recently, ride sharing, paid family leave, and cybersecurity. Michael represents a number of national property casualty and life insurance carriers and, as a result, has strong ties to the major insurance industry trade associations and groups. In addition, Michael has a broad background in New York taxation, environmental and tort matters both before the Legislature and State agencies.

Michael’s practice is a continuation of his experience from serving as the Assistant Counsel to the New York Senate Majority, during which time he focused on insurance, banking, housing, and energy matters, as well as floor counsel. After Michael’s state service, and prior to joining GT, Michael was Assistant Vice President for the American Insurance Association, where he directed their New York government relations program.
