Her experience also dovetails with our existing international tax capabilities and our robust Korea practice. Her ability to help clients navigate tax implications on a wide range of issues and her international tax planning experience will be of great benefit to our cross-border clients."

She advises domestic and multinational clients in connection with their structural and transactional tax planning, including advice concerning domestic and cross-border mergers and acquisitions, financings, dispositions, restructurings, joint ventures, financial products, securities offerings, and other major transactions. At Sheppard Mullin, Soyun will focus her efforts on renewable energy transactions, international tax planning, and expanding the firm’s Korea practice.
