Trademark Registration in South Korea Details


Our licensed Trademark Attorneys in South Korea will handle your trademark request, check all formalities, and then file with the Korean Intellectual Property Office. You will receive confirmation of filing and a copy of the filling request. We will contact you immediately if any subsequent office actions require additional information, or if there are any opposition in South Korea against your application.

After the formal examination at the Korean Intellectual Property Office the trademark will be published for opposition to allow third parties to oppose if they believe that the mark infringes on their brands. The opposition period in Korean Intellectual Property Office is 2 months after publication. You will receive status updates as soon as your mark is published, and any actions the will take if oppositions are received.

If no oppositions arise and your trademark is formally approved, you can expect registration 9-12 months.

As South Korea is a member of the Paris Convention, you can claim the priority of your filing in any other filing in national trademark offices of countries that are part of the Paris Convention.
