Greenberg Traurig launches in South Korea
Greenberg Traurig has launched an office in Seoul in South Korea, following regulatory approval for operation as a Foreign Legal Consultant Office.
The Seoul office will offer legal advice on US law, international treaties and international arbitration. “We are not entering the Korean legal market to compete with local law firms, but rather to work closely with them to serve the global needs of Korean corporations,” Chief Executive Richard A. Rosenbaum said in a statement.
The Seoul office is led by law firm shareholder Chang Joo Kim, who was born and raised in Korea and holds law degrees from both Korea University College of Law and University of Iowa College of Law. The team also includes shareholders Hyun Chung, Richard A. Edlin and Rosa S. Jeong and associate Sun-Young Park.
