Korea Practice

Our Korea Practice Group, chaired by Partner Peter Rho endeavors to be a “one-stop shop” for Korean and Korea-related companies seeking to do business in the U.S., as well as U.S. enterprises.

Korean entrepreneurs and companies have transformed the global business landscape, with direct foreign investment by South Korea in the United States exceeding $74 billion. Attorneys in Smith, Gambrell & Russell, LLP’s dedicated Korea Practice act as a legal link connecting the two business worlds across the worldwide marketplace.

Experienced in both inbound and outbound investment and business opportunities, we advise and counsel companies doing business in or from Korea to give them a competitive advantage in their deals, disputes and business ventures.

SGR is a full-service business law firm across the U.S. with over 120 years of history. Today, building on the extensive knowledge and experience of individual attorneys and teamwork among the practice group professionals, our firm’s ultimate goal is to provide the best legal services to our clients. SGR attorneys work not only as legal advisors, but also as business counselors and strategists, and our firm understands the Korean business world from a legal perspective and our clients’ needs.

Below is a list of practice areas with which SGR has extensive experience in the Korean-American market:

Comprehensive Counsel for Korean and Korean-American Businesses

SGR’s Korea practice attorneys are more than just fluent in the Korean language. Our team is deeply familiar with the nuances of Korean culture and business protocols, as well as their intersection with U.S. laws. We have done more than just study Korean culture – it is an integral part of our lives, background and practice.

We are leaders in Korean-American communities and organizations, including the International Association of Korean Lawyers, Korean American Bar Association, National Asian Pacific American Bar Association, and KHEIR Center. Our leadership helps us position clients in front of the issues shaping cross-border business interests across Korea and the United States.

Additionally, we maintain strong relationships with the top law firms in Seoul, whom we turn to when issues involving Korean law arise and when U.S. clients seek outbound opportunities.
