Seoul-headquartered law firm Yulchon has welcomed Sang Mook Kang, a former senior prosecutor with the Busan District Prosecutor’s Office, as a partner.
The hire comes months after the additions of Wook Jin Rah and Woo Young Choe, two other former prosecutors, to Yulchon’s criminal bench.
While serving as a prosecutor at Special Crime Division 1 of Seoul Central District Prosecutor’s Office, Kang managed anti-corruption investigations of corporate executives and high-ranking government officials accused of white-collar crimes. He also investigated international criminal cases that involved negotiations with foreign authorities.
Kang started his career in 2008 and worked at the planning department of the Ministry of Justice, assisting with legislative and parliamentary response matters. In 2021, he served as a policy advisor to the ministry.
Kang’s arrival has taken the number of partners in Yulchon’s criminal investigations practice to 32.
