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

On that count, Hyeran You, senior legal counsel at Samsung Electronics, ticks the box.

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.

“With sophisticated knowledge of US and Korean patent law, she has handled various US patent litigations involving the company, including landmark cases before US district courts and an International Trade Commission Section 337 investigation,” the nominator says.
