What our clients say
When Nordic Patent Institute was established, we questioned if the new authority could provide work of sufficient quality. However, we gradually found out that Nordic Patent Institute performs searches that are at least as thorough as the larger PCT searching authorities.
When filing a PCT application we are very concerned about having a second opinion which adds value to the search and examination that has been done in the priority founding application. The fact that we can choose a different examiner and a different office for the PCT application, ensures that we get a completely independent search and examination. We believe that we have avoided surprise prior art later in the patenting process by choosing Nordic Patent Institute.Protector IP Consultants AS
"It is important for the Norwegian intellectual property community to ensure that the required expertise is maintained at the Norwegian Industrial Property Office (NIPO). This is, among other things, one important reason underlying our decision to use the services of the affiliated Nordic Patent Institute.
So far we have been satisfied with the Institute's prosecution of those applications submitted. The cases are, in our experience, examined swiftly, and we find it easy to get in contact with Nordic Patent Institute examiners.
We will therefore continue to use the Institute as a competent PCT Authority for our international applications."Håmsø Patentbyrå ANS
