Companies involved in disputes in maritime, insurance, and international trade matters had long hesitated in deciding which law firm to turn to for legal advice. These practice areas were specialized to a great degree, while the relevant principle of law was complicated and difficult so that a lawyer with a general legal training background could not competently handle matters arising from them. These days, it is widely accepted that Choi & Kim is the first and foremost choice of those companies, whether domestic or foreign, encountering challenging and difficult disputes in such area. Choi & Kim is highly regarded as the best choice.
