Lawyer, Banker

Tel. +82-(0)2-701 4707


Trained as a banker and working as an entrepreneur to finance his law degree, Mr. Nowak gained experience in the town council of Bambergen early in his career, where he was elected and re-elected as the youngest district spokesman in Baden-Württemberg. Mr. Nowak studied law at the University of Konstanz and was consequently hired as the first German lawyer in the role of Foreign Legal Consultant at a Korean law firm in Seoul. Since June 1999, Mr. Nowak has been listed as an arbitrator at the Korean Commercial Arbitration Board, as well as being the retained attorney at the Austrian Embassy in Seoul.


Mr. Nowak came to Korea in December 1997 - in the midst of the Asia Financial Crisis. Since that time he has worked as a foreign lawyer in Korean law firms where his numerous clients have included SME and large companies from German speaking countries. As a business management consultant, he provides constructive management advice that is directly applicable and goes beyond the theoretical legal considerations. With his knowledge of real-world facts and the commercial reality of life in Korea as well as the legal framework, Mr. Nowak’s specialty is to provide practical and well informed assessments of the business risks and the relevant solutions. Over the last 15 years, Mr. Nowak has proven himself as a partner to the management of foreign companies in Korea.


Mr. Nowak is a registered lawyer in Munich, but not in Korea. He also works for the Korean law firm Lee & Ko as Partner (foreign attorney at law) in Seoul.
