Seoul-based law firm Yulchon said on Sept. 25 that it has wrapped up the reception events for the annual International Bar Association conference held in Seoul.
Some 1,200 attorneys across the globe gathered at the reception party, dubbed “Yulchon Sunset Cocktail Reception” Sept. 24 at its headquarters in Parnas Tower, which is adjacent to the venue for IBA conference, Coex, located in southern Seoul. This was followed by “Sunday Drinks After Dark Party,” which was also attended by 1,000 people.
