Mayer Brown add partner to global real estate group
Mayer Brown has hired Kwon Lee, former managing partner of Lee International IP & Law Group, a Korean firm, as partner into its global real estate group. At present, Lee is based at Mayer Brown's Hong Kong office, but will relocate to New York by year's end. The firm believes Korean clients will be particularly attracted to Lee's experience for their outbound transactions.
Lee's clients include pension funds, construction companies and financial institutions. He advises on their outbound investments and M&A transactions, in addition to other real estate matters.
