Led by practice head Junsang Lee, Yoon & Yang LLC‘s team acts for Korean and international clients in cross-border disputes connected with areas such as aviation, insurance, construction and commodities, among others. In 2018, Nam-Geun Kim and Sang-Pil Lee were the lead partners who successfully represented Korea Resources Corporation and STX Corporation in a circa $259m KCAB arbitration claim brought by POSCO Daewoo over its withdrawal from a Korean consortium which had jointly invested in the Ambatovy nickel mine development project in Madagascar. Another highlight saw the firm advise Samchully ES in a $7m KCAB arbitration against Jeonju Power Corporation, which arose from delays to a power plant construction project. In other key developments, Ji Hoon Cha and Min Young Han joined from APEX LLC. Senior foreign attorneys Myung-Ahn Kim and Sam Kim, who are members of the California Bar and New York Bar respectively, have extensive experience handling cases under the rules of the ICC, HKIAC and SIAC, among others. Yonsoo Kim and associate Mun Jeong Kyung are also recommended.
