Bird & Bird enters cooperation agreement with Korean firm
Bird & Bird has established a presence in South Korea after signing a cooperation agreement with South Korean firm Hwang Mok Park.
The non-exclusive arrangement will make the firms preferred referral partners for UK and South Korean business, giving Bird & Bird access to Hwang Mok Park’s 100 lawyers in Seoul.
“Korea has one of the world’s largest technology-driven and knowledge-based economies and is an important market for Bird & Bird’s core industry focuses,” said the firm’s CEO David Kerr.
“We think the cooperation agreement approach fits our Asia strategy better and can offer our clients a fuller range of Korean legal services, compared to the foreign legal consultant office route.”
