Law firm Nelson, Mullins, Riley & Scarborough has signed a pact with the Republic of Korea’s Embassy in Washington D.C. to provide advisory services in a bid to strengthen bilateral U.S./Korean relations as well as advance its communication with the 116th Congress.


NMR&S will counsel Korea’s embassy on relations with members of Congress and Executive Branch officials as well as non-governmental organizations and the press, according to Foreign Agents Registration Act documents filed with the Justice Department in January.

The firm will additionally provide strategic consulting services on governmental and public policy matters as well as research and reports.

The engagement, which began in January, runs for six months with the possibility of an extension at the Embassy’s discretion and fetches NMR&S a quarterly fee of $75,000.
