Our Services

Our attorneys structure and implement transactions involving the convergence of the insurance business with the domestic and international capital markets. We handle closed-block financings and securitizations, including Regulation XXX reserve fundings; address mergers, acquisitions and divestitures of insurance businesses and insurance assets and demutualizations; and work with insurance holding company structures. Our attorneys structure and document mortality and longevity risk hedging transactions, synthetic guaranteed investment contracts, funding agreements, and other forms of financial and benefit-responsive products issued by insurance companies. We prepare and negotiate reinsurance treaties and arrangements, obtain related regulatory approvals, and create and maintain life insurance and annuity premium financing programs. Our team also develops life settlement securitization vehicles and Euro and global medium-term note programs for life insurers backed by funding agreements.

With professionals focused on tax, corporate and securities law, we address all areas of insurance capital markets representation, including transactions involving the creation and licensing of new insurance entities. Members of our Financial Services practice advise on insurance-dedicated funds and the structuring and documentation of hedge fund life insurance, and guide capital markets investors through regulatory compliance. Katten's Structured Finance attorneys focus on the alternative risk transfer solutions associated with insurance capital markets, while our Tax Planning practitioners address the related income issues. Together, our team members can represent clients in virtually every type of insurance regulatory, litigation and public policy matter.
