– Håmsø Patentbyrå has always strived to provide high-quality services to its clients. This recognition by the Financial Times shows that we have succeeded in this, and that our services are valued and recognized both in Norway and internationally, says CEO, Rasmus Gjesing.

Based on the contributions of 2900 patent professionals and clients across Europe, Financial Times research partner Statista has ranked firms and patent practitioners across six areas of technology. A total of 160 patent agencies were recommended in the listing, and amongst those near the top, in eighth place, is Håmsø Patentbyrå. The patent agencies that were recommended were awarded a top ranking of gold for “very frequently recommended”, silver for “frequently recommended” or bronze for “recommended” in each of the six different technology sectors.

Håmsø highly ranked in all categories

– Being the only top-ranked Norwegian patent firm, we were awarded gold or silver in all six technology areas. We were awarded gold in materials and nanotechnology, and silver in chemistry and pharmaceuticals, mechanical engineering, biotechnology and food, and electrical engineering, says Krister Mangersnes, Head of Patents at Håmsø Patentbyrå.

Following the publication of the ranking in the Financial Times, Håmsø Patentbyrå has received several enquiries both from firms abroad interested in collaboration and from patent professionals in other countries interested in the possibility of working for Håmsø.

Helping industry and commerce

Håmsø Patentbyrå specialises in helping businesses to protect their inventions, designs and trademarks. Patent protection is a demanding discipline that involves a combination of technical expertise, law and business development, and in today’s environment of increasing globalization and competition, protecting ones intellectual property (IP) is more important than ever.

– A company can increase its revenue by protecting its inventions, designs and trademarks because monopoly rights are granted that can be used to prevent others from copying. As well as protecting its own assets, it is important for companies to avoid violating the rights of others. Håmsø Patentbyrå can help by investigating the rights landscape and performing a freedom to operate (FTO) assessment, explains Mangersnes.

Internationally competitive

Håmsø Patentbyrå has several large foreign and international companies amongst its clients, as well as many Norwegian companies. This can be attributed to Håmsø also being competitive internationally in terms of both price and quality. As Nordic partner of the international AIPEX network of IP firms, Håmsø Patentbyrå is also able to offer clients simplified management of large IP portfolios.

Håmsø Patentbyrå has an international team of 15 attorneys with a broad range of expertise. The team is well equipped to help small and large companies protect their inventions, whatever the sector. 

– We have the skills needed to assist our clients in all aspects of intellectual property protection, says Mangersnes.
