Based in Jipyong’s Seoul office until 2010, major cases which Mr. Kwon advised on include: the purchase of Yearum Mutual Savings Bank, investment in Golden Oil, the acquisition of Three Seven and the acquisition of Eco Energy Holdings. Major corporate lawsuits Mr. Kwon handled include: representing Korea Union Lottery in a lawsuit regarding prize money payouts of instant lotteries and representing I&E in a lawsuit regarding the cancellation of collateral trusts.
