Seoul

The Seoul office advises both Korean companies doing business overseas and international clients doing business in Korea, providing strategic local support and seamless access to our global resources. We have over 25 Korean-speaking attorneys throughout the firm in the areas of M&A, capital markets, technology transactions, leveraged finance, IP and commercial litigation, IP licensing, and white collar crime.

A LEADER IN KOREA

Paul Hastings has a long history of representing Korean companies dating back to the 1970’s, when we advised Commercial Bank of Korea, and was one of the first international law firms to open an office there. We likewise have a deep and longstanding commitment to Korea. Our Seoul office enables us to help our clients pursue new paths to growth, including some of the most complicated litigation and both in-bound and outbound landmark M&A transactions in the region such as the sale of Walmart Korea to Shinsegae and Samsung’s acquisition of Harman.
