US firm O'Melveny & Myers launches in Seoul

November 14, 2012 O'Melveny & Myers launched an office in Seoul this week. The Korea practice is led by partner Joseph Kim, who will divide his time between the US and Korea, and the team is rounded out with counsel Youngwook Shin and of counsels Jinwon Park and Sungyong Kang.

The move follows launches by a number of other US firms in South Korea: Paul Hastings opened its doors in Seoul last week, Covington & Burling debuted its office in Seoul on 1 November, Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton launched in August and Ropes & Gray was first through the gate in July.
