Herbert Smith Freehills is delighted to announce the promotion of Dana Kim (Seoul) to Of Counsel and Martin Wallace (Hong Kong) to Senior Consultant.
Dana Kim specialises in international arbitration and corporate crime and intelligence and also leads the intellectual property practice in Seoul. A skilled advocate with 10 years of experience, Dana has worked on disputes across Asia, including in China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia and South Korea.
Martin Wallace is an experienced international arbitration specialist. He trained with Herbert Smith Freehills and practised in the firm's London office for two years before relocating to Hong Kong in 2010. He has played a critical role in the growth and success of the firm's market-leading Greater China arbitration practice, including acting for the successful parties in some of the most significant and high-profile arbitration-related court cases in Hong Kong in recent years.
Asia arbitration partner May Tai said, "Martin and Dana are first-rate lawyers who are a tremendous asset to our practice. Their promotions are richly deserved, and a testament to the deep bench of talent that Herbert Smith Freehills fields in the Asia-Pacific region and globally."
