Gro Katarina Andorsen

European Patent Attorney


Employed since 2011. Registered European Patent attorney.

Gro joined Håmsø Patentbyrå after two years as a freelance translator for us. She first joined the annuity department, before she went on to a position as patent attorney in 2013.

Gro is particularly interested in opposition proceedings, and is responsible for the in-house training at Håmsø Patentbyrå. She also writes a blog (Norwegian only) about “the road to patent” which is published on our web site.

Gro is a member of EPI's (The Institute of Professional Representatives before the European Patent Office) working group to prepare the European Patent Administrators Certificate Training Program (EPAC).

Gro has experience from very different work environments and positions. She is a Master of Science in the field of engineering geology and wrote her thesis on slope stability in the open pit mine at Titania AS. She also has experience from tunnel projects.

Gro has many interests, and the interest in health and people led her to change her career, and she has eight years of experience as a naturopath with her own practice.

This combined with her great interest for languages and creative writing, has moulded her into the analytic, accurate and service-minded person that she is today.

Working languages: English and Norwegian.
Basic knowledge in German and Italian.

Area of expertise:

Petroleum technology.
