[IFLR1000] Yulchon Ranked Tier 1 for M&A and Competition by IFLR1000

Yulchon has been ranked in tier 1 for M&A and Competition by IFLR1000, the International Finance Law Review’s independent guide to the world’s top financial law firms. Rankings are based on extensive surveys, client and competitor interviews, and other independent news sources.


“Already strong in aviation finance, Yulchon has looked to expand its financial institution group (FIG) practice. The firm brought in partners Myung Jong Hong, Kyu Rim Lee and Beom Sang Lim from Kim & Chang alongside a string of associates and advisor hires,” IFLR said.


IFLR also noted that under Sai Ree Yun, the firm’s managing partner and premier antitrust lawyer, Yulchon has a stand-alone competition practice made up of several former judges and former KFTC officials as well as a former U.S. FTC official and antitrust partner at large U.S. law firms.


“It’s excellent – it pursued a case to the Supreme Court and overturned an infringement decision by the domestic anti-trust authority [KFTC],” one client told IFLR.


“Yulchon’s lawyers are excellent. They come from various and complementary backgrounds which give the team a unique standing,” another client added of the M&A team. “In addition, it has tremendous experience in handling complex and multi-jurisdictional matters that brings important added value. The team is very responsive with wide in-depth industry knowledge throughout all areas.”


On the Energy and Infrastructure front, IFLR stated: “With Young Su Shin and Byong Wook Kim leading the way for Yulchon in energy and infrastructure, the firm has developed a good reputation in privatisations, mergers and acquisitions, development of green field projects in the energy industry, and transaction structuring.
