Bio

Woochul Hwang is a senior foreign attorney and an international arbitration specialist in complex and high-value disputes arising from commercial and investment transactions, notably post-M&A, joint venture and shareholder disputes. He also regularly advises on multinational clients’ cross-border investigatory and regulatory matters. Ranked as a leading individual in key directories, Mr. Hwang is sought-after for his advocacy skills and “superb capability in the analysis and assessment of cases” (Chambers and Partners 2020). 

Prior to joining Kim & Chang, following an apprenticeship assisting the academic research and arbitration practice of renowned international arbitrator Professor William W. “Rusty” Park of Boston University School of Law, Mr. Hwang was a key member and partner of Bae, Kim & Lee’s international arbitration/litigation team. He is a co-author of the first English treatise on international arbitration in Korea and of its Korean counterpart.
