Jurisdiction - Korea
Stephenson Harwood Granted Licence To Open In Seoul.

4 August, 2014


The Korean Ministry of Justice has awarded international law firm Stephenson Harwood LLP its licence to practice in Seoul. Michael Kim led the successful application and will be Managing Partner of the office following its opening.  Opening in Seoul will enable Stephenson Harwood to develop its existing Korea practice, where the firm acts for conglomerates across shipping, ship-building and ship finance work, banking, and trade sectors. 


Michael Kim commented: “Korea is a key market for Stephenson Harwood and one where both the firm and I personally have many clients. Our new office will enable us to further strengthen our presence and provide closer contact to these clients.”


Sharon White, CEO of Stephenson Harwood added: “We are very pleased to have received approval from the Korean Ministry of Justice. South Korea is a very important market for us and having Michael head our new office further bolsters our presence and capability in the region, bringing us closer to our clients and the local market. The new office will create further business opportunities for our existing offices and associations in Asia and for our wider international business.”
