Yoon & Yang has further bolstered the firm’s construction and labour advisory capabilities with the hiring of Samsung Electronics Service’s general counsel Sam Park, and Daewoo Engineering & Construction’s head of legal Jae Woo Jeon as partners.

Myung Soo Lee, a senior managing partner at Yoon & Yang, said: “The addition of Jeon and Park will further strengthen our expertise in the construction and labour practice … Yoon & Yang commits to transcend traditional legal advisory roles to become a more comprehensive and specialised strategic business partner for its clients.”

Park, who had spent about four years at Samsung Electronics Service with prior experience in administrative roles at the National Labour Relations Commission and the Ministry of Employment and Labour, has joined as a partner in the employment and labour practice group.

As head of the Korean consumer electronics service conglomerate’s legal team, he had advised on numerous labour issues ranging from labour commission cases, wrongful dismissal claims to industrial accident claims and unfair labour practices. During his 13-year stint at Samsung Electronics Service, he had also served as the legal director of a task force for direct employment of staff from partner companies of the conglomerate.

Jeon, on the other hand, has joined Yoon & Yang as a partner in the construction, engineering and public procurement practice group. Having served as head of legal affairs, compliance support and, most recently, domestic legal affairs at Daewoo Engineering & Construction during the past 14 years, he had overseen legal issues concerning real estate development, contracts and construction and general corporates.

With years of experience in the real estate and construction industry, he had been hired as part of Yoon & Yang’s efforts to further strengthen its capability to advise on disputes in high-stake real estate and construction projects, the Seoul-based firm said.
