Overview

From IP asset transfers to a change as simple as a name and address or changes on a business level such as M&A’s and liquidation can pose immense administrative burden on companies with registered IP rights. Whenever these minor to major changes occur, it is within an IP right holder’s duty to report the changes to patent and trademark offices in respective jurisdictions to ensure the legal validity of their IP.

If such changes are not promptly and accurately reflected in official records, IP owners may not be able to properly claim their rights, leaving them at risk of not being able to defend their registered rights or to respond against possible infringements or oppositions. Also, due to a Korean Intellectual Property Office(KIPO)’s unique database system which recognizes IP owners by applicant codes, not by the name of the holders, which can be unfamiliar in foreign jurisdictions, Recordals cases must be dealt with even more discretion in South Korea. To free the clients of these complex and burdensome tasks, PI IP LAW offers a fully delegated service optimized for local regulations and procedures, keeping accurate and up-to-date records on behalf of the clients.

Our qualified team of IP specialists is highly experienced in both international and local laws and regulations to ensure the successful completion of your project. Our global agent network enables us to offer highly competitive fixed fee rates, providing predictability and transparency.
