Insurance

World-class solutions for life and non-life global insurance businesses

The Japanese insurance market’s recent liberalization has created market entry opportunities and we have been at the forefront in helping non-Japanese clients to take advantage of these opportunities, drawing on our knowledge of the law and practice in this highly regulated sector.

In addition, regulation of the insurance sector is identified as a critical component of the global financial system. As a result, Japanese regulations now reflect international regulatory frameworks.

Our expertise encompasses insurance litigation, regulatory affairs, compliance, reinsurance, captive insurers, group restructurings, mergers and acquisitions, and financings. We provide solutions to clients engaged in global insurance markets.
