Rimon Law, a law firm operating on a decentralized, distributed model, has opened an office in Seoul.

The office will be led by Jungwoo Chang, a former managing partner and co-founder of Korean boutique firm Accelsior Partners.

The Seoul office is Rimon Law’s 42nd location and the latest in a series of outposts that the firm opened in different countries since the outbreak of the pandemic.

In Asia, Rimon also has an office in Shenzhen, which it opened in January 2019. In August last year, the firm hired Xiaowei Ye, a former managing partner of Morgan Lewis & Bockius’ Beijing office, as a partner in Shenzhen and Washington DC.

In Seoul, Chang represents technology companies at all stages of their lifecycles. He also advises clients on general corporate governance and regulatory issues.

Prior to launching Accelsior Partners, Chang worked in-house with Yello Mobile, STIC Investments and LG International.
