O'Melveny Chair Brad Butwin Interviewed by Korean's Largest Business DailyDecember 07, 2012
O'Melveny & Myers LLP Chair Brad Butwin was interviewed recently by Maekyung, Korea's largest business daily. The interview took place during Butwin's visit to Korea in conjunction with the launch of O'Melveny's Seoul office last month. In the interview, which ran as a full-page “Hello CEO” story in the November 24, 2012, edition, Butwin discussed O'Melveny's long history of representing Korean clients in a variety of areas, including patent and antitrust litigation. The Firm opened a Seoul office, he noted, to become a larger fixture within the Korean community and to meet with clients on the ground and address needs on a day-to-day basis. He also commented on current trends in litigation and regulation affecting Korean companies.
Maekyung also spoke with Butwin about O’Melveny’s tradition of community involvement and how the Firm has already begun to carry forward that tradition in Korea, including its support of Seoul National University School of Law's newly established pro bono program.
