Yoon Yang Kim Shin & Yu

14 January 2010

The competition team at Yoon Yang Kim Shin & Yu grew up alongside Korea’s competition law. One of the firm’s previous incarnations, Yoon & Partners, produced some of the first competition lawyers in the country, including Yoon Yang managing partner and Who’s Who nominee Hoil Yoon.

The full-service firm has experienced rapid growth, now boasting 47 practitioners dedicated to competition and antitrust matters. Yoon Yang has also become home for several former high-ranking commission officials, including the commission’s long-time secretary general Joseph Seon Hur, a Who’s Who nominee. Over the past five years, the firm’s client base has expanded significantly as well, both nationally and internationally. Intel, Qualcomm, Samsung, LG, Posco and Korea Telecom have all sought out the Yoon Yang team to handle competition matters.

They are also very confident. Yoon says he believes the firm is without rival in the Korean market, handling the most high-profile clients in the most contentious matters. “We believe this is not questionable,” Yoon says.
