Product Liability

Trade & Commerce



While business practices differ from product to product or service to service, the life cycle of each contains the same fundamental elements.  It starts with research and development, consulting services, procurement of raw materials or ingredients and actual manufacturing, then rolls over into transportation, moves into distribution, marketing and advertising in the destination market, and ends in the final sale to the customer or consumer.  TY & Partners’ Trade & Commerce practice can help you enter new markets and confidently grow your business around the world.  We have extensive experience across all industries and service sectors in Korea, including food and consumables, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, chemicals, fashion and luxury products, and others.



White Color Criminal Defense



Even before the current economic crisis, businesses throughout the world had been operating in an increasingly global and aggressive enforcement environment, which will only grow more intense as major financial scandals emerge.  Overseas bribery and corruption, market abuse, competition/antitrust and fraud enforcement is increasing, prosecutors and regulators are more aggressively seeking criminal sanctions and government support is growing for funding the investigation and prosecution of financial crimes. Cooperation between enforcement agencies around the world is greater than ever before and those corporations seeking to increase their global footprint need to understand the risks associated with cross-border investigations and prosecutions.  TY & Partners’ White Collar Criminal Defense practice is a team of partner and associates who specialize in criminal, regulatory and compliance problems affecting major corporations, their officers and employees.  We represent corporations, business entities and individuals at every stage of the business risk cycle – from legislative monitoring and lobbying; to developing proactive compliance programs and conducting internal audits and investigations; to providing advice during criminal or regulatory investigations; to defending clients in court when necessary.
