Trademark and Copyright

Welcome to W&D trademark and copyright consulting services.

Here are the steps to use our services:

1. Initial consultation: 

To begin, please contact us through our website or via email to schedule a consultation. 

Our experienced team will guide you through the process and answer any questions you may have. 

During the consultation, we will ask for information regarding your trademark or copyright, such as the name,

logo, or content you wish to protect or need to protect for your business in Korea. 

It is essential to provide as much detail as possible to ensure the best outcome for your case.

2. Conduct a search:    

After collecting the necessary information, 

we will conduct a search of the Korean Intellectual Property Office database 

to ensure that your trademark or copyright is available for registration in Korea.

3. Register trademark or copyright:

If your trademark or copyright is available, 

we will file an application on your behalf with the Korean Intellectual Property Office. 

The application process typically takes 6-12 months, and our team will keep you updated throughout the process. 

Once your trademark or copyright is approved, we will receive registration, 

and you will be granted exclusive rights to use and protect your intellectual property in Korea.

4. Acquire trademark from a third party:

Acquiring trademark or copyright from a third party can be a valuable strategy for businesses looking to 

expand their intellectual property portfolio. 

Our team can assist you in acquiring trademarks or copyrights from third parties in Korea 

by conducting due diligence, negotiating with the current owners, and drafting contracts to transfer ownership 

of the intellectual property rights. 

W&D understand that acquiring intellectual property from third parties can be a complex process, 

but our experienced professionals will guide you through every step to ensure a smooth transaction.

5. Monitor and enforce:  

After registration or acquisition, 

W&D will continue to monitor your trademark or copyright and enforce your rights against any infringers.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule an initial consultation, please contact our team.
