[Case] Dr. J. W. Cho, successfully represented the victims and achieved the corrective orders against a foreign-affiliated feed company

 

On November 26, 2018, the Korea Fair Trade Commission (KFTC) imposed corrective orders against Cargill Agri Purina in Korea (a large foreign-affiliated feed company) for unfair trade practices (specifically, unfairly taking advantage of one’s bargaining position). The KFTC ordered Cargill not to unfairly penalize its agents by making them to get its prior consent when dealing with its competitors’ products or by prohibiting the handling of its competitors’ products and terminating their agency contracts if they violate it.  Dr. Jung Wook Cho, a managing partner of KANGHO Attorneys at Law, represented the agents to report to the KFTC and successfully achieved the corrective orders.
