White & Case is opening an office in South Korea Panya K
The office is to be led by Los Angeles-based James K. Lee, head of the existing Korea practice group and a specialist in complex cross-border commercial litigation, who is relocating to the Korean capital. He will initially be joined by London-based construction partner Mark Goodrich and Kyungseok Kim, who recently joined White & Case as a partner in global M&A.
Hugh Verrier, White & Case chair, said: 'Asia is a strategically important region for the firm. We've had an active Korea practice for many years, and now the office in Seoul will allow us to provide on-the-ground support for our clients in their complex, cross-border work.' Source: White & Case
