Shin & Kim has bolstered its bankruptcy and insolvency as well as taxation advisory capability with the duo hire of new partners Dong-kyu Kim and Hun-tae Doh, who joined the Seoul-based firm on 19 February.

Commenting on the addition of Kim and Doh, who were most recently presiding judges of district courts, Shin & Kim’s managing partner Jong-han Oh, said: “Having Dong-kyu Kim and Hun-tae Doh on board in our insolvency and tax groups respectively, we will further strengthen our competitiveness in these areas and provide differentiated legal services to our clients.”

Kim, who was most recently a presiding judge of the Seoul Southern District Court, has served for more than 20 years in multiple courts in the country, including the Seoul High Court and the Supreme Court of Korea. Specialising in insolvency cases, Kim has in the past served as a presiding judge of the bankruptcy and insolvency division of the Suwon District Court as well as the Seoul Bankruptcy Court, respectively.

Kim would be at the forefront of the firm’s newly established corporate restructuring centre amid increasing real estate project financing risks and the growing importance of handling corporate workouts, Shin & Kim said.

Doh, on the other hand, was most recently a presiding judge of the Cheonan branch of the Daejeon District Court. He has 20 years of experience as a tax judge having served at various courts including the Seoul Central District Court and the Supreme Court of Korea. Over the years, he has presided over tax appeal cases at the Suwon District Court and has served a five-year stint as the chief judicial researcher at the tax division of the country’s Supreme Court.
