South Korea > TMT: local firms

The TMT team at Shin & Kim is ‘unique because it provides truly comprehensive advice based on individuals’ technical understanding of the industry‘. Major Korean players across all three strands of TMT regularly instruct the firm, including Kakao, KT Corporation and NS Homeshopping. The group has a particularly notable expertise in telecommunications, with practice head Sinook Kang boasting a historical track record of involvement in some of the most significant M&A transactions in this sector. Kang’s current practice also compasses contentious work. Deep regulatory insight is another hallmark of the group; key practitioner June Young Jang is the name to note on this front. Also recommended are associates Kyu Hong Park and  Jung-Hyun Hwang. Hwang has ‘an impressive degree of experience in mergers of broadcasting and telecommunications operators‘. The firm continued to develop its practice with multiple recent hires.
