Ropes & Gray is the first foreign law office in Korean history to be approved by the Korean Ministry of Justice and registered with the Korean Bar Association as a “Foreign Legal Consultant Office.” We ushered in a new era when we opened our doors on July 20, 2012—the first foreign law firm to do so.  

The firm’s history with Korean companies predates the opening. Over two decades, our lawyers have represented Korean companies in intellectual property, complex business litigation, U.S. government regulations and compliance, antitrust, M&A, finance, life sciences, health care, and cross-border transactions, areas the Seoul office will continue to concentrate on.
