Legal & Accounting Assistance for Startups in Korea

My law firm is, regrettably, not known for assisting SMEs and startups, because of our representation of your lawyers working with some well known multi-national companies.

However, we do have a number of forward-thinking startups and SMEs that we assist in Korea and in China.  We love working with these companies, since we love being an active part in developing systems within businesses that allows growth with less of the compliance risks.

We, also, love being a part of the business of companies.  Many of our attorneys and business professionals have experience with managing companies and assisting companies to find new opportunities and we love to see this experience help our clients succeed.

For example, we work with:

  1. A 50 employee American online advertising agency;
  2. A startup British cyber-security company;
  3. A startup American mobile technology company;
  4. A startup Chinese entertainment company;
  5. A 15 employee American-owned grocery store;
  6. A 5 employee Korean-owned distribution company;
  7. A startup Canadian-owned brewery; 
  8. A Italian restaurant franchise owned by an Italian; and 
  9. A 220+ employee nano-materials company.  
We work with these clients based on, often, low monthly retainers and flat-fee services.  Yes, legal services are not cheap, however, I doubt you will find many of our clients complaining that are services did not add value to the respective business.  

We, also, have many clients that we have introduced to new business.  Yes, little guys can, often, utilize the services of lawyers.  

Regrettably, few lawyers, in Korea, are capable of dealing with the needs of startups and SMEs in Korea, thus, my law firm has created a team to address and handle the needs of these clients.  

You will see, over the next few weeks, more articles tailored to the needs of clients requiring the need for small-business focused lawyers. We, also, will have an accountant at our firm write a few articles.  
Please check back soon.

Also, I love to talking to anyone.  Setup a time for a call with me and I am happy to discuss with you the needs for your business.
