R Street Institute hires Ian Adams as senior fellow on insurance and next generation transportation
Adams is rejoining R Street, having previously served as the group’s Western region director. He was most recently a public policy associate at the international law firm of Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, where he maintained a national insurance regulatory practice.
“We are pleased to have Ian rejoin us at R Street,” said R Street Institute President Eli Lehrer. “His work on policy relating to both insurance and next generation technology will be a huge asset, strengthening R Street’s already robust work on these issues.”
“I’m delighted to be back at R Street,” said Adams. “This is a homecoming, of sorts, and I’m pleased to be in a position to further R Street’s work toward ensuring outdated, overbearing regulatory structures are not standing in the way of technological innovation.”
Ian is a graduate of Seattle University, with bachelor’s degrees in history and philosophy, and received his law degree from the University of Oregon. He is a member of the California and Illinois bars.
Ian lives in a suburb of Sacramento, California with his wife, Ruth Yang.
