Morgan Lewis represents a number of significant Korean clients on matters spanning the globe—including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, strategic investment and other commercial contract transactions, intellectual property, and litigation. Our lawyers, a number of whom are fluent in Korean and have worked for law firms in Korea, routinely represent Korean clients in collaboration with our collection of practice groups in offices throughout the United States and the world.
Our team is well versed in the myriad legal, commercial and cross-cultural issues Korean companies face as they seek to operate around the world. We also assist US and global companies with entry into the Korea market and help them develop their businesses there.
Central to assisting Korean clients on complex business dealings are our firm’s contacts within the investment banking and venture capital communities in the United States (California and the East Coast), London, Singapore, Dubai, and other international finance centers; our preeminent IP prosecution, counseling, and litigation experience; and our highly regarded antitrust and compliance investigations and litigation practices.
We work with clients across a wide range of industries—including technology, life sciences, telecommunications, automotive and mobility, energy and natural resources, media, financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, semiconductors, insurance, and education—that have an interest in expanding out from or into Korea.
