Jipyong is a champion of public interest. Our lawyers are professionals who
adhere to the highest ethical standards and support diversity, equal access to
justice, and community service.

Jipyong, a law firm incorporated in 2000, has constantly performed pro bono activities with the spirit of “share, care and engage”. Pursuant to Article 1 of the Attorney-at-Law Act, the mission of an attorney-at-law is to defend fundamental human rights and achieve social justice. We have endeavored to carry out this mission. Jipyong was the first Korean law firm to establish a Pro Bono Committee dedicated to public interest work in 2000. We have performed various pro bono services relating to the disabled, social economy, corporate public services, international human rights, child and youth, and more. In particular, we have used our legal expertise to litigate, provide legal advice, and conduct legal research to promote public interest.
In order to engage in pro bono activities more diligently and systematically with Jipyong’s employees and others who share the same values, Jipyong formed Duroo, an incorporated association, to make the world a place full of warmth and fairness. Duroo has partnered with numerous NGOs and non-profit organizations over the years, and it encourages our attorneys and employees at all levels to participate in various pro bono activities.
