HFW continues rapid construction expansion with hire from Ince
HFW has landed a key hire in construction partner Kijong Nam from Ince & Co in London.
Kijong joined Ince & Co in 2011, and had a key role in developing the firm’s Korean practice alongside corporate partner Yeon Jin Seong. His specialties include oil and gas, energy, and offshore construction and shipbuilding.
