Can AI Replace Legal Professionals?


          In the interview, Daeho Lee provides an insight into which AI-related technologies are being used in the patent and trademark fields, which legal services are currently being performed by AI, and forecasts to what areas such services can be extended. 


          When questioned about the insecurities about the legal market soon being replaced by AI, he ensures that our patent attorneys are well aware of the directions and developments of AI technologies. Rather than feeling anxious about the idea of being replaced, at PI IP LAW, we possess expertise regarding technological advances in detail. We also strive to develop the areas where machines still cannot perform better than humans. Daeho explains that is why “we have a better idea of the areas to develop where people are still the primary service providers”.


          The report also mentions PI IP LAW’s dedicated AI team and our AI-related services. Our AI team is comprised of experts who possess a sufficient amount of experience and expertise regarding AI-related technologies.

          AI possesses the great potential to improve and transform any business, and the legal market is not an exception. At PI IP LAW, we understand the advantages of AI. Our team not only secures patent rights involving AI technology but also delivers advanced solutions incorporating IT in our services. To further achieve such innovative solutions, we are working closely with Sejinmind, an IT startup established by Daeho.
