Oslo Patentkontor has roots dating back to 1911 and is one of the country’s oldest intellectual property rights consultant offices.
An important foundation was created in 1927 when Alf B. Bryn left his father’s company and started by himself. Alf B. Bryn was a colorful person with interests spanning from mountaineering and fiction writing to intellectual property. Bryn was an engineer but received his philosophical doctorate for a paper concerning inventive merit. His issue with comments to the Norwegian Patents Act from 1910 was printed in 1938 and is frequently referred to in Courts cases even today.
Today the company is owned by its employees. This ensures not only commitment, but also enthusiasm, engagement and a will to excel.
