Kirk began his career in 1981 as an attorney in the Chicago offices of Lord, Bissell and Brook, rising to the level of partner and managing partner of the firm’s Los Angeles office. He was an original member of the NAIC Service Contracts Act Working Group, whose efforts spawned the adoption of the Service Contracts Model Act, a necessary progenitor to the proliferation of the administrator-obligor corporate structure. Kirk promoted the adoption of insurance company tax treatment for service contracts providers, which he successfully achieved for his client through the issuance of Technical Advice Memorandum 9601001 by the IRS in 1996. From 2006-2013, Kirk was President and CEO of Dealers Assurance Company.
