As the size and scope of corporate activities are expanding, the social demand for compliance management and social responsibility of companies is increasing. As a result, criminal trials are moving beyond the traditional crimes prescribed by the Criminal Act, such as embezzlement and breach of trust. A large percentage of criminal trials now involve violations of various special laws and regulations, such as those related to unfair trade, capital markets, workplace safety and health, and trade secret protection. Based on the nature of these cases, Yoon & Yang’s Criminal Response Practice has established a flexible collaborative relationship with attorneys enriched with the relevant knowledge and experience in the area. The Practice also retains close connections with the Investigation Response Team that defended clients at the investigation stage, thereby advocating with proactive and devoted defense while dedicating its efforts to obtain the best results for clients.
