ZICO Law and Yulchon Starts ASEAN-South Korea Secondment Program

Following the collaboration by Roosdiono & Partners (R&P – a member of ZICO Law) and Yulchon LLC to establish a Jakarta desk, ZICO Law is pleased to announce the commencement of the first secondment between the two law firms.

Grace Novia, a senior associate from the banking & finance practice group at R&P, has started her secondment at Yulchon’s offices in Seoul as of 1 February 2018. Grace, who joined R&P in 2012 had previously studied in South Korea as part of a high school exchange program and holds a firm understanding of the Korean language. Grace’s secondment will last 6 months and she will return to R&P in July 2018.

“It is a dream come true to be able to work and learn in Seoul with a law firm such as Yulchon” said Grace Novia “ZICO Law has really committed to the personal development of its lawyers; not many law firms can provide this kind of opportunity.”

Speaking on the first secondment between ZICO Law and Yulchon, ZICO Law Regional Managing Partner, Hanim Hamzah, commented as follows “We are extremely proud of Grace Novia and we wish her the best during her time in Seoul. We believe that this is the start of a long line of secondments between ZICO Law and Yulchon and we look forward to many more collaborations with them.”
