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. Having an established presence on the ground enables us to bring the full weight of our international network combined with our deep sector expertise and product knowledge to bear for Korean corporations and financial institutions or investors looking to invest in Korea.
