What our clients say

Nordic Patent Institute holds high quality for novelty searches and patentability assessments not only in the oil and gas industry, but also in several other technology areas, such as, but not limited to, medical equipment, GreenTech, electricity, electronics and software.

Bryn Aarflot AS

"We have used various other PCT authorities in the past, but we found that we received search results so late that we hardly had time to use them before we had to continue nationally with the application. We receive the international search report very quickly at NPI, and this is something that is of great value to our customers."
