BKL has continued to provide excellent legal services in the area of Chinese law since its establishment of the China Team in 1997. BKL is the first Korean law firm to provide advice with regard to businesses in China. Thus, we could lay a solid foundation in China by establishing our Beijing office in 2004, Shanghai office in 2008 and Hong Kong office in 2015 by offering professional and customized legal services to Korean companies with business ambitions in China and vice versa.
BKL’s China Team is led by Yong Quan CHI (admitted to the bars in China and Australia) and its members are Dae Shik KWON (Beijing), Sung Wook KIM (Shanghai) and associates, who are licensed in China and the U.S. Our broad professional network in China, coordination with our attorneys in Beijing and Shanghai, and the extensive experience of our China Team have made it possible for us to provide a full range of legal services for Chinese and Korean companies.
The major legal services provided by BKL’s China Team include advising on M&A transactions, establishment of joint venture companies, restructuring and cross-border investments including IPOs, advising on exit strategies including the sale of shares or liquidation and providing general legal advice on issues under Korean law and Chinese law including various shareholder disputes.
