4. Recruitment of Foreign Lawyer

Recognizing this demand, Lin has recently recruited Ms. Wenpu Yang (Chinese attorney), aiming to provide high-quality legal service that aligns with our clients’ business strategies and management objectives on various issues related to Sino-Korean business relations.

Going forward, Lin promises to continuously recruit verified talents in various fields to ensure customer satisfaction.
