Latin America has been receiving worldwide attention as an emerging region due to its abundant natural resources and huge potential for economic growth. Following the successful completion of Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with Chile in 2003 and Peru in 2010 (which entered into force in 2004 and 2011 respectively), Korea is also negotiating a FTA with Colombia. Korea is also conducting joint research with MERCOSUR, the largest economic bloc in Latin America, in view of a possible FTA. Economic cooperation between Korea and Latin American countries has expanded to include areas as diverse as mining, energy, construction, infrastructure, transportation, information technology and communications.

While business opportunities continue to grow in Latin America, Korean companies face many difficulties due to a lack of understanding of local laws, customs and languages. We have launched a Latin America Practice Group primarily to provide Korean investors with the support they need in order to succeed in Latin America.

The Practice Group also includes: Young Woo Lee, who has extensive experience in natural resources development, joint venture agreements and real estate investments; Byung Tae Kim, who has significant experience in cross-border investments, mergers & acquisitions and corporate restructurings; Benjamin Hughes, who is an expert in international arbitration and cross-border litigation; and Young-Ju Kim, the former Minister of Commerce, Industry and Energy of Korea.

With this team of talented lawyers and our network of prestigious local law firms in 33 countries in Latin America, we are able to provide unparalleled region-specific legal services in Korean, English, Spanish and Portuguese. Korean companies investing in Latin America can handle their legal concerns in Seoul through us, and Latin American companies interested in entering the Korean market can receive the best legal advice available in the market.
