The past year was a particularly busy year for white collar criminal defense attorneys, because CEOs and other executives of major corporations in Korea were subject to police investigations, tax probes, and subsequent prosecutions. The Korean government has been pressuring these big corporations to be transparent and accountable by conducting government-sanctioned investigations on the CEOs and high-level employees. Subsequently, some have been indicted for embezzlement, bribery, or breach of trust. Yoon & Yang has been successfully representing some of these executives from the Korean conglomerates and large corporations.
