Making Bank

Read this is if you wonder why the Korean legal community is willing to fight tooth and nail against opening up in FTA agreements. Thankfully the patent bar is so specialized and obscure it's always off the table.

The article doesn't reflect the reality. Most patent attorneys (byeon-ri-sa) work in partnership while filing their income under one partner's name. The stats are simple tabulation of the tax payment records.

Entry level patent attorney gets less than 500,000 KRW (about 50,000 USD) and the income doesn't drastically increase by the year.

I'd say 6 million KRW per head is almost 6 times of what partner level patent attorney gets.

Let us all save and make our own personal banks. We should always have spare money.
