Intellectual property protection in Korea

The Republic of Korea is one of the four East Asian tiger states and has rapidly developed into one of the most important economies in the world. Korea has become a world leader in a number of technology industries, such as in the production of cars and ships, as well as electronic products like microchips, mobile phones, flat screens and computers. Korea is also a market leader in the white goods industry. Intellectual property protection in Korea is therefore essential for successfully entering the market there and for your company to be competitive in that market.

We can offer you our support in matters relating to patent, design, and trade mark protection in Korea so that you can safeguard the continued production and sales of your products by protecting your ideas. Isarpatent has been operating in Korea for many years – in particular in the economic and industrial centres of Seoul and Gyeonggi-do – and is in daily contact with internationally renowned law firms and other service providers in Korea. You can therefore rest assured that you and your IP rights are in the best of hands. Isarpatent also regularly gives lectures on intellectual property law at leading universities in Korea, in particular at Seoul National University and Hongik University.

The services we offer include support in all matters relating to patent, design and trade mark protection in Korea as well as translations from and into the Korean language.

Our Korea Department will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
