Head of IP at a Fortune 500 Chemical manufacturing company

I collaborated with Nordic Patent Institute (NPI) on various projects, including Freedom-to-Operate studies and invalidity searches. The NPI professionals demonstrated a deep understanding of the assignments and consistently delivered results in a timely manner. I particularly appreciate their practice of engaging with clients to discuss strategy and review the findings after providing the final report. This open communication is essential for effectively interpreting results and identifying the most relevant information. I highly recommend NPI to companies and professionals seeking assistance with patent searching.
