U.S. firm White & Case has strengthened its global project development and finance practice with the hire of Sungjin Kang as a partner in Seoul from Latham & Watkins.

Kang, who spent more than a decade with Latham in Hong Kong and Seoul, advises on various project-related transactions, as well as on transportation finance and M&A. He earlier worked with Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy for nearly nine years.

With the addition of Kang, White & Case has three partners in the Seoul office. Kang is the U.S. firm’s first partner hire in Asia since it added capital markets specialist Margie Chan in Hong Kong in August from Norton Rose Fulbright.
