Attorney Lee Hong Won Receives Half of “Losses from Investment in Asset-Backed Securities”
n a recent court ruling on financial investments, the Seoul High Court held the sponsor responsible for the design and sale of securitized securities liable for damages, which is highly unusual. The case was filed as one of the so-called "Gatekeeper cases" and the investor lost all of the damages in the first trial but was awarded 50% of the damages on appeal.
As one of the leading lawyers who represented the investors in the case from the appellate stage and secured the victory, LIN’s Lee Hong Won was particularly pleased with the court's recognition of the duty of due diligence. He reiterated that the ruling clarifies the obligation of asset-backed securitization transaction sponsors to protect investors by providing a legal basis for their due diligence.
