Meitar’s Korea country practice is uniquely suited to assist clients seeking to take advantage of emerging commercial opportunities in the Republic of Korea. With our global network of associates and partners, we provide invaluable help to companies wishing to expand activities in Korea and to international corporations and financial institutions in evaluating potential business ventures, disputes, and regulatory matters there. In light of the far reaching agreements in place to expand Korea’s trade and commerce, such as the EU-Korea Free Trade Agreement, the US-Korea Free Trade Agreement, and FTAs that Korea has signed with 45 countries, Meitar offers clients proven experience in bridging the geographic and cultural divide between the two countries and with the rest of the world. Our hands-on experience spans all industries, including high-tech, Internet, medical devices, biotechnology, clean-tech and green technologies, water treatment, textile, agriculture, optics, chemicals, education, food, pharmaceuticals, retail, automotive and more.
Meitar maintains a presence in Korea to assist and guide our clients with all aspects of establishing and maintaining their local operations.
Our strategic services include establishing a legal presence in Korea, establishing, operating and registration of representative offices, wholly-owned local subsidiaries, joint ventures, foreign-invested partnerships and branch offices, international tax planning, local commercialization of products and technologies and negotiating business transactions from the very early stages until final closing.
To ensure that clients receive the professional assistance they need, we work with several Korean law firms in order to tailor the right solution for each client. This flexibility ensures the perfect match for every need, both in terms of rates and specialization.
