Ius Laboris, the HR law firm alliance with more ranked HR lawyers than any other global legal services organisation, * announces the addition of two new firms with expert local HR lawyers:  Yulchon LLC in Korea and Kiely Thompson Caisley in New Zealand.

The Alliance now offers multinational companies access to over 1,300 of the best HR lawyers in 44 countries spanning five continents. The addition of Yulchon and Kiely Thompson Caisley fits Ius Laboris' strategy of offering an integrated HR law service of the highest standard across the world. 

Sam Everatt, Executive Director of Ius Laboris said, "We are pleased to welcome Yulchon and Kiely Thompson Caisley in the important Asia-Pacific region where our multinational clients require local HR law advice.  We recently expanded into China so further expansion in the Asia-Pacific Rim is a natural next step".

Chris Engels, chairman of Ius Laboris said, "These two top quality law firms will assist our multinational clients worldwide who are in, or expanding into, the Asia-Pacific Rim area. As ever with HR law it is important to have the best legal advisors on the ground as employment and labour law varies widely from country to country."
