The office will be the firm’s seventh in the Asia-Pacific area. Skadden Arps becomes the 19th international law practice to open in the South Korean capital. Plans are to increase the base to ten to 15 lawyers in the medium term. Native Korean speaker and corporate partner Young Shin will head the office, having previously run the Korean desk in New York.
