Hae Park-Suk

Of Counsel at Nixon & Vanderhye PC

Hae Park-Suk counsels clients in all areas of trademark law. Her practice is focused on advising clients on the availability and proper use of trademarks, prosecuting and managing US and foreign trademark portfolios, developing enforcement and defensive strategies, resolving trademark disputes, negotiating and drafting licence agreements, and working with customs agents in the United States and around the world to prevent import and export of counterfeit products that threaten her clients’ brands and reputations.

The majority of clients Ms Park-Suk represents today have been relying on her legal advice for more than two decades. She brings her in-depth experience to serving individuals, institutions, family-owned businesses and Fortune 500 companies across a broad spectrum of industries, including those in the advertising and marketing; transportation and logistics; games, toys and entertainment; manufacturing; and wine and food sectors.

Experienced in managing extensive global portfolios, Ms Park-Suk takes pride in offering efficient, business-oriented advice that is tailored to her clients’ strategic goals. As noted in World Trademark Review, clients praise her as being “able to [balance] legal uncertainties with business realities” and “her patience and knowledge are evident when explaining difficult points”.

Ms Park-Suk began her trademark career at the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), beginning as an intern during law school, then invited to a law clerkship in the Office of the Commissioner for Trademarks and later, after graduating from law school, working as an examining attorney. Building on her USPTO experience, Ms Park-Suk has practised at two Washington DC law firms (a boutique IP law firm and in the trademark practice group of a large general practice firm) before joining the dedicated IP firm of Nixon Vanderhye in 2015.
