Who's Who Legal Arbitration: Lawyers

Liz (Kyo-Hwa) Chung is a partner in the firm’s international arbitration and cross-border litigation group and the anti-corruption and corporate compliance group.  

Ms Chung has extensive experience representing both Korean and multinational corporations in international arbitration disputes under the rules of the ICC, ICSID, LCIA, SIAC, KCAB, and UNCITRAL as well as numerous cross-border litigation cases. She also serves as an arbitrator and neutral on the panels of HKIAC, KCAB and WIPO. Prior to joining Kim & Chang in 2003, Ms Chung served as a judge at the Seoul Central District Court and the Seoul Administrative Court of Korea (1999-2003).

She served as a member of the IBA arbitration guidelines and rules subcommittee; the IBA subcommittee on the New York Convention; the IBA Arbitration Newsletter’s regional editorial board; the SIAC users council (South Korea National Committee) as well as the Korea country representative of the IBA anti-corruption committee.

In addition to the Who’s Who Legal: Arbitration (2016), she is listed as a leading individual in Chambers Global, Chambers Asia Pacific, Who’s Who Legal: Construction and Euromoney’s Expert Guides (both the Commercial Arbitration and Women in Business Law editions). She is praised by the clients as “a brilliant lawyer and a pleasure to work with" and also earns admiration for “her cross-examination skills” and ability to "deal effectively with any difficulties or unforeseen issues" while addressing the client’s needs “promptly and effectively throughout the proceeding." (Chambers Asia-Pacific 2016 and Chambers Global 2016).  

Ms Chung received law degrees from Korea University College of Law (B Jur, 1996) and Harvard Law School (LLM, 2008). She is admitted to practise in Korea and New York.

WWL says: Liz Kyo-Hwa Chung is "one of the few women in Korea to gain real traction in this area and that is because she is very good at what she does."
