Chung & Partners(Beopmubeopinsuho) is a law office based in Seoul, South Korea. (Disclaimer)

We are fully specialized in serving foreign clients.

In 2008, we started ASK KOREA LAW.  This is the first-ever online English legal resource for Korean laws published by a Korean qualified lawyer aimed at helping foreigners with any Korean legal issues.  That was the beginning of our story.

Now we are very unique in that 100% of our cases are all foreign in a sense that every case has an international aspect in terms of the involved parties and/or the subject matters.

We are true counselors to our foreign clients, responding quickly to their needs and helping them find creative solutions.  Dedication to our foreign clients and making them succeed in Korea is what defines us.
