Professor Hi-Taek Shin adds lustre to Twenty Essex from Seoul

We welcome Professor Hi-Taek Shin to Chambers today as a full-time arbitrator. He will continue to reside and conduct his practice from Seoul, Korea.

Hi-Taek brings a unique and successful practice with past experience acting as counsel, an academic, an arbitrator and also in public service. Until 2007, he was a senior partner at leading Korean law firm, Kim & Chang, specialising in cross-border transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and shareholders’ agreements and various commercial transactions. Since 2018, he has been serving as the Chairman of KCAB INTERNATIONAL, the Korean Commercial Arbitration Board’s international division.

Hi-Taek’s arrival will further strengthen the set’s long-standing and well-established international dispute resolution presence in the Asia Pacific region.

Duncan Matthews QC and Stephen Atherton QC, co-Heads of Twenty Essex, commented:

“We are honoured that Professor Hi-Taek Shin has chosen to enhance the Twenty Essex offering of top international arbitrators. His outstanding reputation and international practice is an excellent fit with Chambers, combining expertise in international arbitration and commercial litigation across various sectors including energy and infrastructure”.

Hi-Taek says, “It is a pleasure to join Twenty Essex, which has a deservedly exceptional reputation in international arbitration. I look forward to joining my fellow arbitrators at Chambers and begin the next phase of my career endeavours to better serve for the effective and efficient resolution of international disputes.”

 

Contact the arbitrators’ practice management team for further information on Hi-Taek.
