David Farkas, David Lee Noted for Asiana Airlines Representation


David Farkas and David Lee were highlighted for their work on behalf of Asiana Airlines in the Law360 story “Asiana Airlines Says $50M Catering Award Can't Be Enforced(subscription required).

The piece provides an overview of Asiana's request that a California federal court refrain from enforcing a $50 million foreign arbitral award in favor of a catering company – Gate Gourmet Korea Co. Ltd – that would guarantee the caterer “unheard of profits.”  

Asiana stated that the disputed contract with the catering company was part of a larger plan to enrich the former CEO of Asiana Airlines, Park Sam-koo, and was only executed after a bribe was directed to him. Mr. Sam-koo was jailed for embezzlement in 2022.  The airline told the court that the award cannot be enforced because it is the result of criminal activity.
