Korea’s transformation in recent decades has seen it significantly move up the value chain and become one of Asia’s major industrial nations with strong trade relationships with New Zealand. While the potential rewards can be compelling, identifying and capitalising on these opportunities is not easy or straightforward.

Business and investment transactions in the New Zealand/Korea corridor raise a number of challenges arising from unfamiliar tax and regulatory regimes and business customs, as well as language and cultural differences.

Our approach

We assist Korean businesses to invest and grow in the New Zealand market, and assist New Zealand companies looking to enter Korea. Our bilingual professionals with deep local knowledge help clients anticipate, understand and manage the many commercial and country specific challenges facing them. We listen to our clients and focus on the issues that really matter.
