Working in Korea

For over two decades, we have been providing Korean entities with strategic and commercial solutions to their most complex legal issues. In 2015, we opened an office in Seoul to be close to our clients. Our team in Korea works closely with lawyers throughout White & Case's global network to advise government-owned enterprises, conglomerates and financial institutions.

By offering both international reach and deep knowledge of the domestic legal and business landscape, we give Korean clients the support they need to pursue opportunities in the global marketplace. In turn, our clients place their trust in us to handle their most complex legal issues, ranging from regulatory matters and investment opportunities to dispute resolution.

Our success depends on recruiting and developing the best legal talent so we can continue to offer the market-leading services that we are known for. As an associate, you will have the opportunity to grow and learn as you work alongside colleagues who are leaders in their field. Working regularly on cross-border transactions, you will be in daily contact with our international clients, making connections with lawyers from across White & Case's global network. Our culture is hard-working, but collegial. Committed to helping you reach the pinnacle of your career, we provide a range of training programs, as well as mentorships available at the senior associate and partner level.
