– Med denne prestisjefylte utmerkelsen befester Håmsø Patentbyrå sin posisjon som et av de ledende byråene i bransjen, sier administrerende direktør Rasmus Gjesing.
Headquartered in Stavanger, a hotbed of innovation, Håmsø attracts a wide variety of instructions through its doors, but shines brightest in the oil and gas industry. With over 30 practitioners, most of whom have spent time in-house and come armed with PhDs, it makes light work of the trickiest of applications. Department spearhead Krister Mangersnes “provides great value to clients. His technical insight is superb and the final product is outstanding. He also facilitates communication between legal representatives, which optimises the flow of work and information”. Mangersnes recently prevailed on behalf of Westcon Power and Automation before NIPO, successfully invalidating a European patent belonging to ABB which had already been granted in major markets worldwide. European patent attorneys Jørgen Risdal and Steven Van Dijk have the Midas touch when taking applications through to grant. Risdal’s extensive background in agricultural machinery ensures he speaks the language of innovators; while former Philips man Van Dijk knows all the ins and outs of microelectromechanical systems and semiconductors, as well as technologies in the electronics and mechanics sectors.
