JIPYONG named as the 'Shipping, Maritime & Aviation Firm of the Year'
at 'Asialaw Asia-Pacific Legal Practice Awards 2017'
 
JIPYONG was named as the 'Shipping, Maritime & Aviation Firm of the Year' at 'Asialaw Asia-Pacific Legal Practice Awards 2017' held in Hong Kong.

The team's reliability and expertise have been recognized internationally as it successfully handled important cases affecting the domestic/overseas maritime and aviation industries such as AirAsia crash, Lao Airlines crash, Asiana Airlines emergency landing in Hiroshima, Hyundai Fortune explosion, Hanjin Shipping bankruptcy, and OW Bunker bankruptcy.

Upon acceptance, Choon-Won LEE commented that the "industrial field is the best ground for development of legal theories", and that he would "endeavor to elicit reasonable conclusions readily acceptable to all related parties by reducing the gap between practice and theory".

Mr. Lee has been repeatedly selected for many years until this year by Asialaw as one of the Leading Lawyers in Shipping & Maritime in the Asia-Pacific region.

'Asialaw Asia-Pacific Legal Practice Awards' are conferred by 'Asialaw', a legal magazine published by the British finance magazine, Euromoney, to law firms in the Asia-Pacific region which showed outstanding performances in 18 fields.
