Family, Trusts & Estates Litigation “Teamed with a ´high level of expertise´ and the capacity to provide ´quick and clear judgements´.”
– Chambers Asia-Pacific 2018


Like other civil disputes, in many trusts and estates-related disputes, client confidentiality is of paramount importance.  That is because such disputes often involve other critical issues such as criminal, tax, injunctive relief, divestitures, and mergers.  Furthermore, in many cases, laws other than Korean laws may need to be reviewed, depending on the nationality or residence of the parties.

Kim & Chang’s Family, Trusts & Estates Litigation Practice has the experience and know-how to manage and resolve such complex issues involved in trusts and estates matters, providing comprehensive and professional one-stop legal services to its clients.  For example, during early stages of disputes where the parties may engage in settlement negotiations, we provide strategic advice to and represent our clients.  Furthermore, we advise our clients on related criminal, tax, corporate divestiture or merger-related issues arising from division of assets, inheritance, etc.  Needless to say, in such cases, confidentiality of information is very important when resolving trusts and estates-related disputes in favor of our clients.

In Korea, there is unfortunately a scarcity of lawyers who have the requisite expertise and experience to handle many complex issues that arise from trusts and estates-related disputes.  But we are able to deliver effective advice and optimal outcomes for our clients because, among other reasons, we assemble a customized team of experts for each client’s unique needs.  We, therefore, effectively and successfully represent each client in all disputes related to family, trusts and estates, tax, corporate law, criminal law, and international litigation.
