Sheppard Mullin is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the opening of its Seoul, South Korea office.
The firm opened its foreign legal consultant office in Seoul in 2012 and was among the first three law firms from the United States, United Kingdom and the European Union approved to open in South Korea.
Our Seoul attorneys provide a broad range of services to Korean-based businesses or businesses with significant Korean operations, including many in the technology, financial services, entertainment, and manufacturing industries, working seamlessly with more than 40 lawyers globally from our industry-ranked Korea practice. The firm’s Korea blog, "U.S. Legal Insights for Korean Businesses," provides updates for Korean companies doing business in the United States.
Our Seoul-based attorneys are Korean native speakers with educational and cultural backgrounds in Korea. Our attorneys regularly coordinate with local Korean counsel for (non-Korean) clients’ needs for Korean legal advice.
The firm celebrated this momentous achievement with more than 100 clients, guests and colleagues in late September in Seoul. The event featured an interactive video with information about the Seoul Office, our Korea Practice and Team, relevant practices and industries, and firm history.
