Ashurst advised South Korea’s Kia Motors Corporation (“Kia“) with respect to its investment with the Mexican State of Nuevo Leon to build an approximately USD 1bn car manufacturing plant, which will enable it to secure a local production base to meet global demand for new vehicles.


The Ashurst team was led by partner John K.J. Kim, and assisted by partner Peter Kwon.


Commenting on the deal, John K.J. Kim said: “This is a very significant development and a major strategic move for Kia.
