Through the COVID-19 crisis, we have come to understand that the ‘normal tomorrow’ we take for granted may not come. We have learned that we should not procrastinate and postpone what we should do today until tomorrow. Speedy decisions and actions may be our path to survival in the future. It’s a contest of whether we can withstand the rapid evolution of AI.

Since its establishment in 1968, ONDA TECHNO Intl. Patent Attys. has been working with many domestic and foreign clients as a business partner who fully supports the intellectual property strategy essential for corporate management. In the conventional IP management of companies, which is mainly focused on the acquisition and maintenance of IP rights, an emphasis is placed on the use of the rights, such as through enforcement and licensing.  In the future, from the construction of an IP portfolio for new business development or collaboration with other industries, the value itself of intellectual property for companies will change rapidly.

“Creating worldwide value by offering high quality intellectual property services”-Based on this management philosophy, ONDA TECHNO Intl. Patent Attys. will further accelerate the transformation. While constantly reforming the organization, we will continue to provide the highest standard of quality and speed of service by constructing an in-house system that makes full use of AI and interconnectivity of systems. With a high level of expertise, a global perspective, and the ability to collect and analyze information as the backbone of our organization, we will focus on providing services that accurately capture customer needs.

We appreciate your continuous support and patronage of ONDA TECHNO Intl. Patent Attys.
