Taemin Kang

Trainee European patent attorney & Korean patent attorney
I am a trainee European patent attorney at NLO and am originally from Korea. Thanks to my background, I am able to advise clients on Korean IP. In addition to my role as an aspiring European patent attorney, I can be a bridge between our clients and potential Korean clients. And I can also support our clients who are interested in acquiring IP rights in that country.

  • Electrical Engineering
  • Computers/Software
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Licence agreement

In Korea, I worked as a patent attorney for 15 years and spent three years in software development. My position involves handling a wide range of patent-related matters such as prosecution, prior art analysis, patent disputes in telecommunications, networks, electronics and software technologies. My experience and expertise would be helpful to any clients who are interested in acquiring IP in Korea.

One of the reasons I love my work is that it involves dealing with legal and technology issues at the same time.

I always keep in mind: ‘He Can Do, She Can Do, Why Not Me!’ This quote originated from a brilliant Korean woman who started with nothing and achieved great success in the US. Her words encourage me to challenge myself to do new things and to not give up.

Almost every weekend I accompany my kids to their football matches and golf lessons, which really brings me pleasure. It’s not only an opportunity to spend time with them but an occasion for socializing with local people.
