Our client, a Vault 20 US law firm, is actively looking for a mid-level M&A lawyer to join its office in Seoul (3-6 years PQE).
The ideal candidate needs to have attended a US law school for JD or LLM with good grades and have BigLaw experience at the associate level on M&A/PE investments.
The US law qualification is a must-have for this position. This is a great role for Asian background lawyers who want to stay closer to home, as well as a great opportunity for international lawyers to explore Korea/Asia – Korean language skills would be a bonus but are not required for this position (although, tbh, Seoul’s a lot more fun if you can parlez).
Deals-wise, you will be working on a mix of inbound PE investment on Korean targets and Korean outbound M&A transactions. Reach out to [email protected] to inquire.
