The first of its kind in the market

Ashurst HwaHyun Joint Venture Law Firm (Ashurst Korea JV), the first joint venture between an international firm and a Korean firm based in Korea, was established in 2023 between global law firm Ashurst and Korean law firm HwaHyun.

Leveraging Ashurst's successful outbound practice for Korean clients and HwaHyun's deep understanding of the Korean market as a full-service law firm operating in the jurisdiction, Ashurst Korea JV is ideally placed to assist both Korean and international clients with their legal needs.
