Q1. What job did you have before joining the company and what are your current tasks at THEWAVE IP law firm?

Before I joined the company, I worked at Y.P. Lee, Mock & Partners, one of the largest IP law firms in Korea, and I specialized in the field of display devices.

After several years, I moved to the U.S. and passed the U.S. Patent Agent bar exam. Thereafter, I worked as a Patent Agent for a US company, and finally I joined THEWAVE as a Patent Attorney. Based on my experience in electronics, chemical engineering, and mathematics, I am in charge of technology convergence work and handle a number of overseas cases.
  

Q2. Why did you join THEWAVE?

While working as a Patent Agent for a US company, I worked with the THEWAVE on one of their IP matter in the US. Then, I decided to join THEWAVE since many of the patent attorneys here were my colleagues at Y.P. Lee, Mock & Partners.
  

Q3. What do you think is the most important thing in IP work and what are your strengths?

I think having various experience in many areas is the most important thing in IP work.

Regarding my strengths, I can see as much as you know, and I consult as much as I know.
In particular, clients who want to create a stepping stone for overseas expansion through IP, need patent experts who know the culture of US companies and US patent law. This is where my experience in the US plays a very important role.
 

Q4. What kind of patent attorney do you want to be?

I want to be a patent attorney who is not afraid of challenges. Life is unpredictable and new things that you have never encountered appear all the time. Thus, I want to be an IP expert who addresses such challenges and is never afraid of dealing with new issues.
