IAM is an industry leading publication that reports on intellectual property as a business asset and the many ways it creates significant corporate value.  IAM annually releases its list of law firms of its evaluation of patent quality and strength across various types of patents.

Jonathan Y. Kang, the head of LHDK&W’s Intellectual Property Group, commented, “I’m very pleased that our firm is ranked as the number 1 firm in the consumer electronics category this year, as well as among the best law firms in other categories.  When you look at the lists and see the big name firms and other well-known IP boutiques, it is not just an honor to be listed among them, but it is also equally humbling in that we know that we need to work even harder to maintain the level of quality and standard that our clients, and the industry, have come to expect.  It is an accomplishment that all of the firm’s patent lawyers and agents should be proud of.”

Founded in 1991, LHDK&W is a full-service, international law firm with offices in Los Angeles, Newport Beach (CA), the Washington D.C. area, London (U.K.) and Seoul, Korea.  The firm represents many foreign conglomerates, including members of the Global 500, in various legal practice areas, including domestic and international litigation, product litigation and regulatory compliance, mergers and acquisitions, real estate, intellectual property (patent and trademark procurement, licensing and litigation) and employment counseling and litigation.
