BKL's TMT practice group, formed in 1988, was the first Korean law firm team to focus on telecom infrastructure, information technology and broadcast regulation. Our practice has expanded rapidly over the past 20 years, and has been at the leading edge of Korean legal services, in every relevant area of industry, financial and data privacy regulation.
The TMT practice group specializes in telecom, online services and media, with focal areas including connectivity rules and data security. Added regulatory expertise is supplied by a dedicated team of former government and industry professionals. A large supporting corps of IP experts focus on media-centered businesses, including technology transfer and licensing issues, creative rights and trade secrets. And the Firm offers first-rank expertise in every adjacent practice area, including corporate, fair competition and government relations, along with a top litigation practice.
We serve a wide spectrum of Korean and foreign-headquartered businesses, ranging from multinationals and local market leaders – major telecoms, broadcasters, financial institutions, online/app service providers – to mid-size innovators and fast-growing startups. The practice group delivers intensive regulatory and transactional advice for a large cross-section of the media, online and app-driven space in Korea. Recent focal points include FinTech, location information based services, “internet of things”, and net neutrality issues, to name a few.
