I thought it would be great to share the news regarding Dentons’ official launch in Korea today, through a combination with Lee International. The new name of the firm in Korea is Dentons Lee.
The combination with Lee International builds on Dentons’ strategy to be the first global law firm to combine with a Korean law firm. Dentons can now provide clients with full service legal counsel and business solutions in Korea.
Lee International has a full range of practice areas. It is consistently strong in key practice areas such as Intellectual Property, Mergers & Acquisitions, Finance, Real Estate, Corporate, Litigation/International Arbitrations, Entertainment, Labour and Employment, TMT and Biotech. Our combination leads to significant synergies in light of Dentons’ strengths in each of these areas.
The combination in Korea builds on the strength of the brand Dentons has already established in Seoul, together with Dentons’ combinations in China, Australia, New Zealand and the ASEAN region, all of which have helped establish a reputation for excellence. Clients will benefit from access to the experience and talents of its 35 lawyers in Korea and its 10,500+ lawyers in 183 locations in 75 countries around the globe.
Our new Seoul office will enable us to meet the needs of local and multinational clients across a wide range of industries. If your business needs have not reached Korea, you may still benefit from the addition of leading talent in their sectors and practices, whose experience transcends borders.
