Development of a new product from idea to commercialization is often long and expensive. Patenting is often the best way for protecting the investment in development and to stop others from copying your product.
Protector assists domestic clients in all phases of patenting, from selecting which inventions to patent, drafting and filing patent applications in Norway and abroad, prosecution of patent applications and handling of all necessary formalities. We handle patent applications directly with the Norwegian PTO and EPO, and via trusted patent attorneys in other jurisdictions.
Protector also files and prosecutes patent applications for clients from abroad with the Norwegian PTO and EPO, in addition to validation of EP patents in Norway.
Requirements for filing EP validation:
- EP patent number
- Power of Attorney
- Claims have to be translated into Norwegian. If the patent is granted in French or German, a translation of the description in English or Norwegian has to be filed.
