10 things every insurer should know


The insurance market is constantly evolving, there continues to be new opportunities for companies who are looking to expand operations. We have gained solid industry know-how working in the insurance and reinsurance market for over half a century now and our long-term involvement in providing insurance expertise across Europe and beyond means that we can support clients to make the most of new opportunities.

This brochure contains practical information for undertaking insurance activities in the following jurisdictions, listed alphabetically: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, the Russian Federation, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine. CMS has provided legal assistance in each of these jurisdictions for many years. Drawing on our extensive experience in handling insurance matters across the region, we have selected ten key areas of concern for an insurer when considering establishing operations in Central and Eastern Europe.

Whilst we do not set out the definitive requirements for an insurer wishing to gain a foothold in the region, this guide serves as a backdrop against which CMS can offer a cohesive and commercially realistic, solutions based approach to expanding your operations.
