About AJU Kim Chang & Lee

  • “AJU Kim Chang & Lee”- Since 1965.

    Our firm was founded by the late Mr. C.H. Park, the former Commissioner of the Korean Intellectual Property office (KIPO), in 1965. Since our founding, we have grown into one of Korea’s leading IP firms. In August 2009, we established a partnership with the general law practice firm of Kim Chang & Lee creating the first Korean law firm to specialize in intellectual property, corporate law, mergers & acquisitions, foreign investment, fair trade, labor, environment, and many other areas of law. This new partnership was renamed to “AJU Kim Chang & Lee” and provides clients with unbeatable "comprehensive legal services".
