Welcome to the
Korea Patent Attorneys Association


Welcome to the Korean Patent Attorneys Association. This is the 42nd Korean Patent Attorney President Jangwon Hong.

Thank you for visiting the Korean Patent Attorney Association website. The Korean Patent Attorneys Association, is the only attorney's association in Korea's history and is the legal organization leading the industrial development of Korea.

In addition to Korea's leading companies such as Samsung, LG, and Hyundai, more than 2,200 listed companies have grown with their intellectual property rights protected by their excellent inventions, brands, and designs. Intellectual property rights are behind the enthusiasm for investment in startups, and the future of the Korean economy. In addition, many cultural contents such as BTS, Pororo, and Psy, which are heating the world recently, are also protected by intellectual property rights by Korean patent attorneys

Since its foundation in 1946 for over 70 years, the Korean Patent Attorneys Association has played a key role in helping patent attorneys lead the innovation growth of Korea through intellectual property rights such as patent rights, trademark rights, design rights, and utility model rights. In addition, we have been protecting the value of the patent attorney qualifications to our society by continuously conducting mandatory training for patent attorneys, accusing unqualified persons of patent attorney activities, and detecting patent attorney licenses. In addition to working closely with the Korean Intellectual Property Office and its affiliates, the Korean Patent Attorneys Association, along with the Ministry of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises and Startups, the Ministry of Science and ICT, the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, etc. Through cooperation with each government department, we are doing our best to support patent attorneys to grow into leaders from all walks of life. In addition, we are faithfully carrying out various public interest activities as the only legal organization in Korea.

Attorney members. As patent attorneys who struggle with inventors, smile with entrepreneurs, and listen to investors, you are the jewel of our society. When patent attorneys play a good role, our society can develop and inventors, entrepreneurs, and designers can be treated only when our intellectual property rights are respected. To that end, we will promote various system improvements and external cooperation. We ask for your interest and participation.

The Korean Patent Attorney Society is the only group of patent attorneys who share the success of inventors, entrepreneurs, and designers. The Korean Patent Attorneys Association will take the lead in developing the intellectual property rights of Korea and helping Korea stand out as an Asian IP-centered country.
