DLA Piper has added Brian Youn as a partner in Seoul to fortify its presence in Asia’s finance, projects and restructuring (FPR) practice.

Colin Wilson, FPR head at DLA Piper, said: “Strengthening our FPR bench in Asia has been a long-term strategic priority. Youn’s appointment in Seoul significantly enhances our offering and positions us as a leading firm in the FPR market.”

Youn previously served as a counsel at Milbank with a portfolio of advising major financial institutions, Korean Emission Control Areas, sponsors, investment advisers, investment banks and airlines. His expertise includes financing endeavours of electric vehicles and large-scale energy, oil and gas, mining and infrastructure projects.

Youn’s native proficiency in Korean, coupled with his fluency in Mandarin Chinese, adds to the firm’s seamless communication and collaboration within the region.
