Shin & Kim

Shin & Kim is committed to three core value principles: Excellence, Leadership, and Community

The first Korean law firm to implement a Western-style partnership structure, we were founded in 1981 by three former judges embarking on new careers in private practice with a vision to internationalize legal services in Korea.

Established in 1981, Shin & Kim has grown in close partnership with its clients. We have more than 300 Korean and foreign lawyers admitted to practice in numerous jurisdictions around the world and over 50 other professionals, including accountants, tax accountants, patent attorneys and customs specialists. We provide legal services in a broad range of practice areas such as mergers and acquisitions, finance, litigation, arbitration, taxation, intellectual property and labor, to a diverse clientele ranging from domestic and multinational corporations, financial institutions and small-medium enterprises to state-owned corporations and governments and their agencies.
