As readers will know, one of the most important assets a patent attorney can offer is technical expertise.

A former semiconductor engineer, You’s technical experience helped her transition seamlessly to life as a patent attorney at one of South Korea’s biggest technology companies.
Her nominator describes her as a distinguished expert in electronics and computer science, and adds that she has quickly added legal expertise to her repertoire as well.
In just 10 years as a lawyer, You has become a key member of Samsung’s global IP team.
