Widely recognized as the market-leading firm for asset-backed securitization (ABS) and structured finance in Korea, our experience is unmatched. We occupy Tier 1 in all major legal rankings, including Chambers Asia-Pacific and The Asia Pacific Legal 500. One client told Chambers Asia-Pacific that "[Shin & Kim has a] very strong practice– I doubt there's a team out there that can match them in experience and presence."

We advise on a wide range of financing transactions, including domestic and foreign ABS and the issuance of derivatives-linked securities, asset-backed loan transactions backed by real estate and other assets, sales and management of NPLs and other financing transactions involving Korean and offshore special purpose vehicles.

Many of our lawyers also possess professional experience from working at major Korean and international financial institutions, securities companies and credit ratings agencies, ensuring that they are always conscious of the commercial, as well as the legal, aspects of our clients’ financing transactions.

ABS

We served as the first legal advisor in ABS transactions even before the ABS Act was enacted in 1998, and then subsequently participated and contributed to the enactment and amendment of the ABS Act. We have since served as counsel to domestic and foreign arrangers, issuers, agents, credit enhancement providers, domestic and foreign ratings agencies and other market participants involved in securitizations of a diverse range of assets.

As the market leader in this field, we have played a significant role in creating innovative transaction structures in Korea and have advised on the following ground-breaking matters:

the first trust structure ABS,

the first ABS of Non-Performing Loans (NPLs),

the first ABS of real estate,

the first ABS of lease receivables,

the first collateralized bond obligations (CBO),

the first ABS of future accounts receivables,

the first dual SPV structure cross-border ABS,

the first cross-border CBO, and

the first cross-border mortgage-backed securitization (MBS).

 

We also advised on the first synthetic ABS combining derivative transactions, further solidifying our reputation as the leading legal advisor in this field.

Covered Bonds

In light of the global financial crisis and the difficulties faced in the MBS market, covered bonds have attracted increasing amounts of interest from investors as well as issuers. Our extensive structured finance and securitization experience has ensured that we have been at the forefront of this growing area, and we have been involved in a number of ground-breaking transactions, including Korea Housing Corporation’s US$500 million issuance of covered bonds in 2010 (this was the first statutory covered bond issuance in Asia).

We were awarded IFLR’s Deal of the Year in 2010 for our work on Kookmin Bank’s US$1 billion sale of covered bonds (this was the first structured covered bond issuance in Asia).

Derivatives

We provide legal advice concerning various innovative derivative products, including currency transactions, swaps, options, futures and forwards.

Our market-leading experts guide the client through all legal aspects of derivatives transactions, including structuring, documentation, negotiation, issuance of legal opinions and review of regulatory and legal issues.

Lease and Transportation Finance

We offer expert advice on leasing, asset-based financial structures and structured financial transactions for the transportation industry. Our team assists major domestic airlines and shipping companies, as well as domestic and foreign financial institutions, with financing, M&A and other types of transactions.

We are experienced in financings for building and purchasing aircraft and ships, tax-advantaged lease transactions and financings for the purchase and sale of used aircraft and ships, developing the optimal deal structure and strategy to meet our clients’ needs.

In addition, we review contracts, plans and other documents, negotiate important points on behalf of clients, and obtain approvals from, and report to, the government in close consultation with the government or the competent regulatory authorities.

We also perform legal due diligence for M&A deals involving airline and shipping companies and advise on the conduct of business for small start-up airlines as well as on financings using aircraft and ship equipment such as engines and containers.

We also advise on disputes arising from advance payments under ship building agreements and refund guarantees.
