Partner Pete Thrane Publishes on Workers' Comp Insurance in the Star Tribune

In the News

Minneapolis Partner Pete Thrane published an op-ed in the Star Tribune focusing on the Minnesota workers’ compensation program as an example of a successful social insurance program.

Pete explores the history of the workers' compensation program involving fierce legislative battles and massive premium increases throughout the last 40 years. Legislation enacted in the 1990s made substantial system improvements and created the bipartisan Workers’ Compensation Advisory Council, made up of key stakeholders and decision makers.

“No system is perfect. However, Minnesota's workers' compensation system works remarkably well and public policymakers can look to this historical bipartisan process when addressing struggling social insurance programs today,” writes Pete.

As a part of his practice representing insurance businesses in regulatory, governance and transactional matters, Pete assists clients in workers' compensation regulation and public policy matters. He also counsels on insurance transactions, formation and dissolution of insurers, product distribution mechanisms, corporate governance, product development and licensing and compliance matters.
