Hunton Andrews Kurth is giving its international capabilities a boost with the hiring of partners Nelson Ahn and Edward Kim.

John Schneider, co-head of the business finance practice group at Hunton Andrews, said: “Inbound investment from South Korean companies in emerging and mature technologies continues to grow at a frenetic pace, particularly in the southeastern United States. Ahn and Kim are highly regarded for their deep understanding of the South Korean market and the needs of companies operating locally in the US.”

With more than 30 years of private and public sector involvement in South Korea and the US, Ahn spearheaded Lee & Ko’s inbound transactions practice group in Seoul and is currently vice chair of the M&A Committee of the international practice group of the American Bar Association.

Kim, boasting more than three decades of legal acumen, has played roles in various high-profile transactions, including M&A, private equity, corporate spin-offs/restructurings and joint ventures. Formerly a corporate partner at Lee & Ko, Kim’s international experience extends to advising on US and international securities offerings, including sovereign bond issuances.

Sam Danon, managing partner at Hunton Andrews, said: “Ahn and Kim have served as trusted advisers to several leading global corporations with interests in the US and around the world, helping them to execute complex transactions and navigate an array of local legal and operational challenges. We are pleased to welcome them to the firm.”
