Lee & Kim’s vision is to be the intellectual property firm that provides the most appropriate and innovative bundle of intellectual property services, in a time-responsive manner, to the highest professional standards. 


Lee & Kim specializes in IP law practices, including patents, utility models, trademarks and designs. We also counsel our clients on related legal and technology matters, such as licensing and technology transfer, trade secrets and unfair competition.

The firm is ideally located in the Gangnam area of Seoul, which is proximate to the KIPO’s Seoul branch office, the Seoul Central District/High Court and the Supreme Court.  This prime location allows the firm to receive up-to-date information from both the KIPO and the courts.

We understand the need to keep pace with the rapid advances in technology, as well as the changes in legal protection brought about by such advances.  Accordingly, we only select those attorneys who have the best combination of outstanding academic achievement and intellectual property experience.  Our expertise allows us to work closely with our clients to develop, implement and monitor their intellectual property policies.  We also have numerous affiliations with international associates around the globe so as to provide worldwide protection and counseling for intellectual property.

Our clients vary widely from ambitious/entrepreneurial start-up companies to established blue-chip multinational corporations and are located worldwide.  Whether for emerging or mature companies, we work for every client’s right to maximize its potential.
