The Insurance Practice Group offers in-depth advisory services on transactions involving domestic and overseas insurers as well as legal interpretation of insurance laws and representation in insurance-related disputes. Currently, the Korean insurance market is the world’s seventh largest in insurance premiums. Many Korean insurers now have assets in amounts equal to those of other financial institutions such as banks. In pace with the global trend of expansion of insurers’ functions and roles to include those which were once considered to be performed exclusively by banks or brokerage houses, insurers in the Korean market are expected to expand the scope of their business and increase sales channels, and will be regulated in accordance with such changes. Such changes are forecast to increase the number of insurance products, which will be sold through a broader range of sales channels. The complexity of legal issues and disputes is also projected to increase due to the complexity of the market and anticipated changes to Korean laws including the Insurance Business Act. Shin & Kim delivers tailored and efficient legal services based on our in-depth understanding of insurance products and the insurance industry.
