Our Risk Transfer/Legal Support Services team is led by Matt Ennis, a licensed attorney and insurance broker. He is a 25-year veteran in both insurance and law, graduating from both Pepperdine University and the University San Diego Law School. After being in private law practice (specializing in business/real estate and insurance), Matt joined a large California-based specialty contractor as general counsel and general manager.
