Dentons Lee was formed through a 2020 combination between global law firm Dentons and Lee International IP & Law Group, which has its roots in technology and cross-border transactions. It began in 1961 as a patent firm, serving the needs of international corporations doing business in Korea. As Korean international commerce and technology has grown over the past 57 years, so too has Dentons Lee evolved to become a highly sophisticated full-service law and intellectual property firm, with unsurpassed knowledge and experience at the intersection of technology and law, and with a keen understanding of the needs of international clients in cross-border transactions.
Dentons Lee understands technology like no other law firm. It uses that understanding and the experience of its seasoned attorneys, patent attorneys, scientists and advisors to protect and promote the interests of its clients in Korea and abroad. Additionally, with its former judges, prosecutors, experienced private practice attorneys and senior foreign attorneys, Dentons Lee possesses the legal firepower needed to handle the broad range of services entrusted to it by the many Korean chaebols and multinational conglomerates who comprise its global Fortune 100 company clients. These services include domestic and foreign litigation and arbitrations, labour, finance, real estate, M&A, corporate, sports and entertainment, customs, international trade remedies, government investigations, criminal matters and many others.
