Herbert Smith Freehills has closed its office in South Korea as the firm prepares to change its Seoul office registration before Brexit. Under the new registration, the firm will be designated as Australia-based.

Under Korean law, only law firms with headquarters in countries that have a live free trade agreement with Korea are allowed to set up offices in Seoul.
