Korean Lawyers and Law Firms: One of the Most Comprehensive Lists of Attorneys in South Korea Capable of Handling the Needs of Expat Clients

I find the best list of major Korean law firms/attorneys can be found at HG.  Not all law firms on the list are advised to be utilized, additionally,  I suggest, always, hiring an experienced foreign lawyer to work alongside your Korean lawyer.  The best foreign lawyers are, typically, those with significant experience working alongside Korean judges and prosecutors.

Few foreigner lawyers have experience with litigation, thus, if you are involved in litigation, please consult with one of the handful of international attorneys in Korea that have experience with the Korean court system and have a substantial experience working in an equal capacity with Korean lawyers.
