Shin & Kim wins the Equity Deal of the Year at the 2022 IFLR Asia Pacific Awards

Shin & Kim LLC won the Equity Deal of the Year at the 2022 IFLR Asia Pacific Awards hosted by the IFLR, a globally renowned financial law publication.

Shin & Kim won the award for the Kakao Bank IPO deal, which was widely recognized as one of the top IPO “mega-deals” last year. Kakao Bank’s listing ranked second in terms of the size of offering among all IPOs closed in 2021, and was at the center of attention as the first online bank to be listed on the Korea Exchange. Shin & Kim was acknowledged for providing advice on all aspects of the IPO transaction, including, among others, conducting legal due diligence, addressing issues relating to the Korea Exchange’s preliminary review of listing eligibility, preparing transaction-related contracts, and reviewing the securities registration statement. 

Meanwhile, IFLR Asia-Pacific Awards is a publicly recognized annual event where International Financial Law Review (IFLR), a financial law publication and a global media group affiliated with the Euromoney, selects and awards the best deal and the best law firm. This year’s awards ceremony was held online in Hong Kong on March 17.
