Risk Strategies, a national insurance brokerage and risk management firm, has announced the acquisition of LaRocca & Associates, a specialty brokerage with expertise in health and welfare benefits across several industries.

Founded in 1980, LaRocca & Associates has a focus on employee benefits and property and casualty. The company has offices in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Atlanta, expanding Risk Strategies’ presence in the Southeast.

“The acquisition of LaRocca & Associates represents a great addition to our national employee benefits practice and to our company as a whole,” said John Greenbaum, Risk Strategies national employee benefits practice leader. “They bring deep expertise and talent in helping clients successfully navigate the ever-changing benefits market and broad experience in key shared industries.”

LaRocca & Associates serves a wide variety of industries, including manufacturing, service and hospitalities, educational facilities, municipalities, and non-profit organizations. It also has a highly experienced team of healthcare practitioners, further bolstering Risk Strategies, which already has one of the country’s largest P&C healthcare practices.

“Joining Risk Strategies will immediately benefit our clients, as we will have access to a national platform of products, services and business expertise across practices and industries,” said Joe LaRocca of LaRocca & Associates. “It is also a win-win for our valued employees. Risk Strategies is a growing, expanding company, and I’m excited for the combined strengths of our operations and the new opportunities for professional growth.”
