Stephenson Harwood Seoul office ranked Tier 1 for Shipping - Foreign Firms


We are delighted to announce that for the third consecutive year since its foundation the Seoul office has been ranked as Tier 1 by Legal 500 Asia Pacific 2019 – recommended for shipping as the leading international foreign firm.

Clients have described the team as "reliable and very prompt," commented on their ability at "finding out the nub of a question," and highlighted their long standing relationships within the region.

Michael Kim, Stephenson Harwood's managing partner in Seoul is noted for the, "best competency in proposing a solution-driven strategy, assuring the best outcome under the difficult circumstances."

Our Seoul office has been advising Korean clients on their key business decisions since the late 1970s. The majority of our work involves cross-border transactions and multi-jurisdictional disputes with international parties. Our global reach and local presence makes us one of the largest law firm practices in the Asia Pacific region, enabling us to provide a full service offering to our clients.

Our top tier ranking in the legal referral guides is owed to our valued and dedicated client support and peer comments, for which we are always extremely grateful.

We thank our clients and peers for taking part in various surveys and research interviews throughout the year, and look forward to bringing together our unique skills, collective strength and dedication to the legal and shipping industries and most especially to our clients in the region.
