Lawyer Rankings

South Korea > Intellectual property: local firms

Highly respected practitioners Yong-Ho Moon and Ghyo-Sun Park head up the IP practice group at Shin & Kim. The offering is especially reputed for its contentious IP capabilities, often working on complex litigation (including patent prosecution) and arbitration cases in addition to disputes related to unfair competition and trade secrets. Elsewhere, the firm also advises on the registration and licensing of trade marks, designs and copyrights. Bo Kyung Lim boasts niche expertise in the area of drug patents and pharmaceutical trade secrets. Shortly after the departure of Changsu Park in February 2019, Jong Woo Lee joined from the judicial bench at Seoul Central District Court March 2019.
