The firm’s impressive range of services and sizeable personnel provides a huge boost to the network’s capabilities in the region. Samhwa is an ambitious and determined firm, having experienced significant growth since it first originated, and has the type of drive that is well aligned with Russell Bedford’s commitment to growth and development. I look forward to meeting the team as soon as possible and to welcoming them into our supportive network; helping them meet their goals and aspirations.”

Wanjoo Sug, CEO of Samhwa, added: “We are thrilled to join the Russell Bedford network! International network membership is critical to our firm’s success in assisting our clients with overseas operations. Having experienced membership of other networks, we had a clear vision in terms of what we needed from our future alliances, and we are very happy to have found in Russell Bedford a network that is much more aligned with our firm’s requirements. We very much look forward to connecting with our counterparts around the globe and to begin collaborating to provide comprehensive support to each other’s clients.”
