Lee & Ko served as the Korean legal counsel for Carlyle Group ("Carlyle") and advised on its sale of three security service companies including ADT Caps, the second largest security services provider in Korea, to the consortium comprised of SK Telecom and Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets for KRW 2,970 billion (USD 2.76 billion). The share purchase agreement was successfully singed on May 8, 2018.
