  • INTRODUCTION

  • Hanol IP& Law is an intellectual property law firm that was founded in 2001 and specializes in all aspects of intellectual property law including all of the following:
  • the prosecution of patents, trademarks, copyrights, utility models, and designs;

    complex litigation and appeals;

    technology transactions;

    licensing;

    counseling; and

    arbitration.

  • We are now one of the leading IP firms in Korea and the clear leader in the fields of life science and chemistry. We are particularly well-suited to handle issues that are highly technical in nature because of the backgrounds of our patent attorneys, many of whom hold masters degrees and PhDs in scientific disciplines as follows:
  • pharmaceuticals;

    mechanical engineering;

    genetic engineering;

    chemistry;

    biological sciences; and

    electrical engineering.

  • Our professionals also have industry experience with prestigious companies, universities, and research centers in Korea and overseas. Some have experience at KIPO as a former patent examiner. We seek to employ the most talented graduates who then undertake extensive in-house training and have a senior member act as a mentor.
  • Our goal is to continue to provide high quality solutions that are tailor made for each client. Our litigation team also works closely with outside teams if we feel this is to our client’s advantage. By working with our clients we are able to help guide them along the path that they choose to achieve the results they are seeking.
