Hello, I'm Inna ['ee-nah]
I love small businesses, and I love litigation. The best part of my law practice is seeing a flourishing small business and its happy owner who boldly lives out his dream. Though I had the privilege of defending a Fortune 500 company, I prefer working with small businesses because each has its challenges and growth path that needs customized attention. Among my clients are biotech companies, semiconductor manufacturers, tech startups, international distributors, restaurant owners, professional service firms, international hospitality companies, suppliers, and technology licensees. I've helped numerous businesses in dispute resolution and risk management across a wide range of business-related problems and initiatives.

I've worked with people from across the world. My clients are from South Korea, China, Vietnam, Russia, India, and the U.S. I speak three languages and love helping businesses from foreign countries or cultures.

What I value in my practice is integrity and the ability to positively impact my clients' growth and future.

what I value

  • impacting the community through pro bono and low bono
    I devoted six years of my career to the cause of anti-human trafficking and migrant workers' rights in South Korea and the U.S. This experience equipped me with robust intercultural skills and laid the foundation of my work ethic. To continue impacting the local community, I started IB Law Firm with the commitment to devote 10% or more of all resources to the pro bono and low bono practice for small business owners and simply people in need.

    Pro Bono work
    IB Law Firm is actively involved in pro bono work through the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center and Christian Legal Aid of D.C. My firm represents several pro bono clients and regularly participates in pro bono clinics.

    Low Bono work
    Unfortunately, there is a huge gap between pro bono and market rates for attorney's fees. Yet, there are many people with modest income who need legal assistance just like anyone else. My firm devotes its talents to filling this gap with low bono services. On a case-by-case basis, IB Law Firm provides legal counseling and representation at below-market rates.
  • building up and equipping small business
    To protect businesses from risks or adversaries, my firm offers extensive litigation experience. I represented businesses of various sizes and industries. From 2017 to 2020, I worked in Silicon Valley, CA, at a boutique business litigation law firm, handling BvB and employment law disputes, as well as various compliance issues. I represented big-to-small size businesses in disputes involving contracts, distribution agreements, employment law, wage and hour compliance, trademarks, and real estate disputes and transactions.

    To help small businesses in their bold international reach, I am equipped with three languages (Russian, Korean, and English) and intercultural communication skills. I have worked closely with many South Korean companies and know well the culture of Russian-speaking countries.

    Resources for small businesses
    IB Law Firm develops practical guides for businesses in D.C. and California to help them avoid the risks of penalties or unwanted lawsuits. The guides include easy-to-navigate information on how to start a business entity in D.C., what to know about wage and hour basics, and other materials.


  • Liability for Wages to Temp Employees in California (2021)
    Busy employers sometimes prefer using staffing agencies to avoid the hassles of recruitment, interviewing, hiring, wage payment, and benefits. However, convenience comes together with responsibilities.
  • When Can a Parent Corporation Be Held Liable for Subsidiary's Obligations Under California Law? (2021)
    When expanding business, companies frequently consider whether to establish a branch or a subsidiary. One of the most attractive advantages of a subsidiary over a branch is that it limits the parent's liabilities. This limitation is grounded in the general rule that corporate entities are presumed to have a separate existence; each is responsible for its own debts. However, the general rule is not without exception.

Understanding and Knowledgeable
I enjoyed working with Inna. I truly appreciated the information she provided on my matter. Inna went out of her way to ensure I understood the impacts of the agreement I was signing. It was something I did not have experience in. Inna was very responsive and ensured my questions and concerns were addressed (even answering her email during international travel). Because of the time and care provided by Inna on my matter, I feel much better about the agreement I signed. I truly appreciate Inna's work and professionalism."
