Allen & Overy has a long history of advising on many of the largest and most important transactions in Korea.

In 2015, Allen & Overy opened a Seoul office, building on more than 30 years’ experience dedicated to helping Korean companies, quasi-sovereigns and financial institutions to navigate the international legal and regulatory framework as they do business abroad.
