Many top advisers at major S. Korean law firms from gov't: group
SEOUL, May 18 (Yonhap) -- More than half of the senior advisers at six major South Korean law firms are former bureaucrats with expertise in finance, a civic group said Wednesday.

The Citizens' Coalition for Economic Justice said 55 percent, or 53, of the 96 top advisers at the law firms had previously worked in tax agencies and financial watchdogs, raising concerns over the influence they may peddle in the firms' dealings with the government.
