English-Speaking Arbitration Attorneys in Korea

International Korean Commercial Arbitration Boardarbitration between Korean companies and American, Australian, British, Chinese, Indian, German and other nation companies is on the increase.  Regrettably, few Korean attorneys are capable of handling international arbitration cases in the English language, because of the lack of experience in complex international arbitration and the lack of adequate English language skills.  The reality is Korea has few English-speaking arbitration attorneys capable of handling complex international arbitration matters, thus, many firms have turned to foreign attorneys to fill this glaring gap.
