Who's Who Legal Labour, Employment & Benefits

Jeong Han Lee is a partner in the labour and employment practice group of Bae, Kim & Lee LLC, and is recognised as one of the predominant leaders in the field of labour and employment law in Korea. He served as a commissioner of the National Labour Relations Commission; mediator for labour disputes in the Seoul Central District Court; legal adviser of the Ministry of Employment and labour; and member of the regulatory review committee of the Ministry of Employment and Labour.

During his nearly 30 years of experience as a practising attorney, Jeong Han Lee has advised on various labour and employment-related legal issues and cases, which include drafting employment-related documents, handling labour union issues and labour disputes, and advising domestic and foreign clients in restructuring or rightsizing. He has also represented a broad base of clients at various levels of the court system as well as before the Labour Relations Commission in cases concerning wrongful dismissals, wage claims and the validity of employment-related documents. Notably, he has won several Korean Supreme Court cases which are now regarded as precedents for the relevant labour and employment law issues that were involved in those cases.

Jeong Han Lee received his legal education at Seoul National University Law School and his LLM from Tulane Law School. He is the author of numerous articles and publications on Korean labour and employment law and practice (co-author of Annotated Labour Standards Act), and is a frequent lecturer and speaker on employment and labour law issues.

WWL says: Jeong Han Lee is one of Korea's most reputed labour and employment lawyers and is a skilled handler of contractual matters, negotiations and disputes.
