South Korea

Gleiss Lutz’s “Korea Advisory Group” has outstanding contacts and extensive knowledge of the legal and economic framework of the Republic of South Korea. Several of its members regularly spend time in Seoul and have an excellent understanding of the local (business) culture.

Gleiss Lutz maintains close personal ties with South Korean businesses, helping them enter or restructure their activities in the German market. This has earned us a reputation as one of Germany’s leading legal advisers of South Korean companies.

Our partners work closely also with leading independent Korean law firms, enabling us to help German companies successfully implement their business strategy in Korea. These ties are further strengthened by regular secondments to and from Gleiss Lutz.
