South Korean Big Six firm Shin & Kim has bolstered its international arbitration bench with the addition of Brandon (Hyung-Sik) Bang, who previously co-headed the practice at Bae, Kim & Lee.

He becomes Shin & Kim’s fourth partner hire this year, following the addition of former judges Dong-kyu Kim and Hun-tae Doh in February and of former chairman of the Personal Information Protection Commission Jong-In Yoon to launch an artificial intelligence practice in January.

Bang joins Shin & Kim as a senior foreign attorney. He is an international arbitration practitioner who specialises in the construction, M&A, IP and licensing, and reinsurance sectors.

Prior to joining Bae, Kim & Lee as senior foreign attorney in 2020, Bang was an associate at Shearman & Sterling’s Singapore office and at New Zealand-based law firm Chapman Tripp.

In 2021, Bang was named as one of the ALB Asia 40 Under 40. He also made the ALB Asia Super 50 Disputes list in 2022.

Shin & Kim has also been growing internationally, establishing its sixth overseas office in Singapore last year.
