Dr. Harald Endemann said “Joining the JTJB Network will allow us to hit the ground running as far as our Far East aspirations are concerned. We have known JTJB for many years, and we are thrilled at the prospect of working with them, particularly across South-East Asia where they have a strong presence”
Also joining the JTJB Network from June will be the South Korean practice, K & P Law Firm, based in Incheon.

Mr. Taejin Kim, Principal at K & P said “The partnership with JTJB will allow us to service existing and new clients in markets all across South East Asia, and we find that a very exciting prospect. We are looking forward to working with the JTJB family of law firms.”
