Trademark "Kim & Chang is one of the most consistently reliable and successful trademark teams in the world."
– WTR 1000


Our Trademark Practice is consistently recognized as the leading group in Korea by surveys and publications such as Managing Intellectual Property, The Legal 500 Asia Pacific and World Trademark Review 1000.

We are grateful for such recognition, resulting from the hard work and dedication of our attorneys. Our practice is composed of trademark attorneys, litigators, foreign legal counsels, senior advisors and trademark paralegals, with deep experience and expertise in all aspects of trademarks, unfair competition and domain names.

  • Our trademark practice is comprehensive – due to the number and variety of issues we have handled, our team is able to advise on any legal issue which may arise related to trademarks, unfair competition and domain names.
  • We pride ourselves in efficient communication – our native fluency in English, Japanese, French, German and other languages (with many of our members having studied or being trained abroad) enables us to better listen to the specific needs of our clients.
