Expert legal advice for korean businesses and individuals

In this section

Every year, many Korean businesses invest in or expand into the United Kingdom.

As a market the UK has much to offer; a long-standing history of highly successful commercial activity, a globally renowned capital city, and comparatively few barriers to market entry.

However, there are numerous differences between Korea and the UK in terms of legal structures, regulations and practices governing business operations which means that any organization considering such a step should seek sound legal advice at an early stage.

We are fully experienced in all aspects of helping businesses to set up a base or headquarters here – whether in London itself, or elsewhere in the UK. Our specialised Korean advisory team includes a Korean national who is a Korean qualified lawyer, and a number of UK legal specialists in areas of particular relevance to incoming investors.

Together with our contacts in allied professions such as accountancy, property investment and finance we can provide a comprehensive service in relation to business structures, banking and finance, formation and registration, company secretarial duties, tax, VAT, intellectual property protection, restructuring and insolvency, employment and immigration issues, commercial real estate, grants, education and training, and numerous other matters.

Our services also extend to other personal issues relating to the needs of the individual business owner or employee.

Our experience in dealing with overseas companies means we understand your specific requirements.  In meeting them our aim is always to ensure that we achieve the best possible outcome for each individual client, on budget and on time. In fact, the ability to build and maintain long-standing relationships with a loyal client base is one of our strongest attributes and one that we know our clients value highly.

If you are considering investment into the UK– either now or at some future date – we would be pleased to discuss your plans with you either on the telephone or at a meeting. A meeting could be arranged here in London or as representatives from our firm periodically visit Korea, we would be pleased to meet you there at a convenient time.
