OpenChain Expands Partner Program to Korea, Welcomes BKL Law Firm

By June 27, 2019 News

The OpenChain Project today welcomes BKL Law Firm as our first Korean participant in the Partner Program. This marks a significant milestone in building out a China, Japan, Korea (CJK) support network and is a complementary activity to the newly formed OpenChain Korean Work Group for user companies.

“Our firm is thrilled to be a partner of OpenChain,” says Jong Baek Park, Partner at BKL. “I believe that open source compliance through supply chain will be more improved and widespread thanks to OpenChain in coming years. We will do our best to contribute to the OpenChain community and help companies set up their compliance program to be OpenChain conformant.”

“The OpenChain Project has seen steady growth in the Asian region and recently we have formed an active Korea work group for user companies,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain General Manager. “Adjacent to this we are delighted to build out a support network for user companies that seek assistance around open source compliance issues. It is my pleasure to announce that our first legal partner in Korea is the BKL law firm and is spearheaded by Jongbaek Park, a long-term collaborator in the open source community and one of the key contributors to the Korean version of the OpenChain Specification. We look forward to continually expanding our user and our partner support network in the region.”
