Bio

Luke Shin is a senior member of the corporate department at Kim & Chang. His primary areas of focus include antitrust and competition law cases involving multinational corporations as well as crisis management matters and cross-border acquisitions, joint ventures, and other forms of foreign direct investment into Korea.

As a senior member of Kim & Chang's antitrust and competition practice group, Luke Shin has represented multinational corporations in some of the most high-profile cases over the past decade, including many cases that presented ground-breaking issues under Korean antitrust law and practice such as the first series of cases where the Korean Fair Trade Commission exercised extraterritorial jurisdiction to investigate overseas companies. He has also been active in representing Korean companies in antitrust cases in other jurisdictions.

Luke Shin is a regular contributor to various international professional journals as well as a speaker at international and domestic conferences covering the areas of his expertise. Luke Shin was selected to ALB Hot 100 (Pre-eminent Asia-Pacific Lawyers) and recognized as a “Leading Individual” by Chambers Asia 2010 Guide and as one of the "External Counsel of the Year" by Asian-Counsel in 2009 and again in 2012 by the region's in-house community of lawyers.
