Japan

Bae, Kim & Lee’s Japan practice group is devoted to the needs of its many clients, both Korean and Japanese, engaged in the investment and supply of goods and services between Korea and Japan. Japanese clients include both multi-nationals and medium and small-sized companies engaged in a wide range of business sectors, from manufacturing to trading to financial services.

The members of BKL’s Japan team are keenly aware of the profound economic ties and overall business needs of their clients, which call for prompt yet detail-oriented legal services in handling their cross-border transactions. While keeping in mind the big picture, our Japan lawyers regularly accommodate and adapt to the specific needs of their foreign clients. Our lawyers are able to deliver this high level of service since a number of them have received legal training - both academic and practical - in Japan and they maintain proficiency in the Japanese language necessary to provide effective advice to their Japanese clients as well as to fully assist Korean clients in working with their Japanese counterparts.

An area of particular emphasis in serving Japanese clients is inbound investment. The Japan team has assisted numerous Japanese firms in establishing and running joint ventures, and in executing both stock and asset acquisitions--an area of dramatic growth in recent years. The group also has a large and fast-growing intellectual property section (led by Hoo Dong LEE, a Tokyo University LL.M.), which handles various licensing, technology transfer, and patent and trademark matters for numerous Japanese clients.

Other practice areas include: securities; corporate and operational issues, including employment-related matters; real estate; and litigation and enforcement of claims.

BKL is also proud to maintain relations with a number of distinguished Japanese law firms, including Nishimura & Asahi, Anderson Mori & Tomotsune, Mori Hamada & Matsumoto, Nagashima Ohno & Tsunematsu, TMI Associates, City Yuwa, Oh-Ebashi, Iwata Godo, Yuasa & Hara, Nakamura & Partners and Mitsui Company, among others.
