The only state in the Union with Napoleonic Code and parishes instead of counties has always been a little different thanks to its French roots. However, today's Louisiana has similar business licenses and permits to other states. In fact, it regulates significantly at the state level while even New Orleans, its largest city, remains light on licenses and permits.
In Louisiana, insurance Agents and Brokers hold positions of great responsibility. The public and businesses look to insurance agency and brokers for accurate, reliable information on how to get solid, trustworthy risk protection. Accordingly, states regulate the insurance industry and require firms to register and in some cases, obtain several regulatory licenses.
