Shin & Kim advises a sizeable number of Korea’s largest companies on headline outbound investments, particularly in markets where they do business most actively, such as China and Vietnam. It also acts for private equity houses and foreign multinational companies on inbound matters in Korea. In a key development for the practice, in 2018, the firm opened an office in the Pangyo Techno Valley, putting it on a strong footing to attract work from start-ups and conglomerates focusing on information technology, biotech, cultural technology and fusion technologies.
