What we do
We provide prior art searching (patent and non-patent) for businesses and IP law firms. To perform these searches we have specialists covering all technical fields. We utilize the competences of the patent examiners in the Danish and Norwegian Patent Offices. The examiners are all highly skilled PCT-examiners with extensive experience in searching patent and non-patent literature. The searches are performed using the best international patent databases and non-patent literature databases available.

- 150 highly skilled PCT examiners at your disposal

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
"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."Hegner & Partners
