About Barun Law

Since its founding in 1998 by three highly-respected former judges, Hoon KANG (Acting Managing Partner), Jae Ho KIM and Jee Wook HONG, together with Chan Jin KIM, Barun Law has been Korea’s fastest growing and most dynamic law firm.

Barun Law rapidly built its reputation as Korea’s preeminent litigation and dispute resolution firm. The firm attracted high profile lawyers such as Dong Gun KIM (Representative Partner), former Chief Judge of the Seoul Appellate Court; Rho Seung MYUNG, former Vice Minister of Justice; and Young A.

More recently, Jong Young CHOI, the distinguished former Chief Justice of Korea’s Supreme Court; Jae Yoon PARK, former Justice of Korea’s Supreme Court, Byung Sup KANG, former Chief Judge of Seoul Central District Court; and Tong Gi CHUNG, former Vice Prosecutor General joined Barun Law. This unparalleled combination of exceptionally respected attorneys powerfully strengthened Barun Law’s reputation as the “go to” firm for the most important and delicate advocacy matters in Korea.

As Barun Law concludes its first decade, the firm is comprised of approximately 150 fee earners and is already recognized as one of Korea’s preeminent law firms.
