KoreaDaily Highlights O’Melveny’s Sponsorship of US Visits for North Korean Students

January 17, 2013 An article in the January 17, 2013, edition of KoreaDaily, a leading Korean-language news daily, reported that O’Melveny & Myers LLP Chair Brad Butwin recently met with students and the principal of the Hangyeore school for refugees of North Korea, and encouraged them to take part in a firm program that is sponsoring eight students to visit the US. The program was launched in conjunction with the opening of the Firm’s Seoul office. The piece also highlighted O’Melveny’s long-standing ties to the region. “Former partner and Secretary of State Warren Christopher was extensively involved with North Korean issues, particularly on peace and human rights issues, and the entire firm, including the chairman, is fully supporting the program,” the publication noted.
