Risk Strategies acquires LaRocca & Associates

Risk Strategies has acquired LaRocca & Associates, a specialty brokerage with expertise in health and welfare benefits across several industries.

The terms of the deal were undisclosed.

LaRocca & Associates was established in 1980 and specialises in employee benefits and property and casualty (P&C) coverage, with offices in Miami and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, as well as Atlanta, Georgia.

It also offers compliance administration, technology consulting, employee education, analytics and benchmarking, human resource assistance, human capital management consulting, and health and wellness strategies.

Risk Strategies said the business will bring additional strength and local expertise to its national employee benefits practice and solidify its presence in the Southeast US. LaRocca also has an experienced team of healthcare industry practitioners, complementing Risk Strategies’ own P&C healthcare practice.

John Greenbaum, national employee benefits practice leader at Risk Strategies, highlighted LaRocca’s “deep expertise and talent in helping clients successfully navigate the ever-changing benefits market and broad experience in key shared industries.”
