South Korean Law Firm Lee International Appointed in Seoul
Seoul law firm Lee International joins MSI Global Alliance
MSI continues to achieve impressive growth in its East Asian
membership with the recent appointment of South Korean law firm Lee
Though originally focussed on handling inbound work from large
multinationals, the firm has more recently begun to focus on
Korean businesses that are looking overseas. The firm
assessed a number of international law firm networks, but
decided to apply for membership of MSI Global Alliance following an
introduction from MSI's New York law firm member Moses
& Singer, and also a successful assignment with
Smith Moore Leatherwood, MSI's law member in
Georgia and South Carolina.
The firm offers a full range of legal services to local and foreign
companies, including corporate, finance, insurance and securities,
international transactions, intellectual property, entertainment
law, litigation and tax services.
The firm has 2 partners, 110 fee earners, 60 translators and a
total staff of 370. Fifty per cent of the firm's
fee earners speak at least one other language.
The appointment of Lee International marks an important step
forward for both MSI and Lee International, with both parties
now able to benefit from wide legal services coverage across
East Asian markets including China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan,
Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, and now South Korea.
