Koreana Patent Firm took its first step as ‘Joon Koo Lee & Partners’ founded in 1970 by Mr. Joon Koo Lee (1927-1995), a patent attorney and a former Commissioner of Patents of the Korean Intellectual Property Office and also the President of the Korea Patent Attorneys Association. Under his leadership, Joon Koo Lee & Partners took a great leap forward in sync with the rapid development of the Korean intellectual property industry. In 1991, the firm took a second great leap forward as it changed its name to Koreana Patent & Law Firm; and in 2001, the firm was renamed Koreana Patent Firm, which is the current name of the firm, and has developed to be one of the largest patent firms in Korea.
During the last half century, Koreana Patent Firm has accumulated a wide range of technical and legal experiences, database for each of the IP practice areas, and knowhow for optimal utilization thereof, under its management principles of confidentiality, trust, and harmony. The firm has about 200 employees including about 60 best-qualified patent attorneys and many engineers having a doctoral degree in their respective technical fields. The firm provides clients with top-class services in the fields of intellectual property, with globalization trends in mind.
