Lee International has its roots in technology and cross-border transactions. It began operating in 1961 as a patent firm, serving the needs of international corporations doing business in Korea.
As Korean international commerce and technology has grown and become exceptionally sophisticated over the past 55 years, so too has Lee International evolved to become a highly sophisticated full service law and intellectual property firm, with unsurpassed knowledge and experience at the intersection of technology and law, and with a keen understanding of the needs of international clients in cross-border transactions.
Lee International understands technology like no other law firm and it uses that understanding and the experience of its seasoned attorneys, patent attorneys, scientists and advisors to protect and promote the interests of its clients in Korea and abroad.
Additionally, with a team of former judges, prosecutors, experienced private practice attorneys and senior foreign attorneys, supported by a large number of attorneys who were former judicial law clerks, Lee International possesses the legal firepower needed to handle the broad range of legal services entrusted to the firm by the many Korean chaebols and multinational conglomerates who comprise its global Fortune 100 company clients.
