What our clients say

Nordic Patent Institute is frequently chosen as the Authority for international search and examination by me and several of my colleagues. Even though we like to support local search and examination skills, the close vicinity in culture, way of thinking, language and not least the awareness of national industries are more significant factors in favour of Nordic Patent Institute.

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."
