About us

We are a Norwegian international IP law firm with 45 staff and closely connected through the AIPEX alliance with similar companies in 10 other European countries. Our own staff includes attorneys from six countries, and we are steadily growing our international team of patent and trademark attorneys.

The company was founded in 1950 and is still a family business. Our international expansion is based on a strong position at home, where during the past five years, we have filed more patent applications for Norwegian industry than any other agency.

Our location near Stavanger has given us the opportunity to develop alongside the Norwegian oil industry, Stavanger being the 'oil capital' of Norway. Oil exploration and production involves a wide range of technologies, from mechanical, geoscience, and marine structures to hydraulics, chemistry and information science. In more recent years, many companies have diversified their oil-related technologies to renewables and other industries. The region, which is ranked as the most innovative in Norway, also has large and in many areas world leading fish farming and agricultural equipment industries. 

Our strategy is to maintain our strong position in the domestic market and grow our international business, particularly outside of Europe, serving as a European IP Hub for the complete range of intellectual property services.
