About

Provided by BAHR

BAHR is a leader in the most complex, cutting-edge intellectual property work in Norway. We have an unmatched record of success in patent litigation in the country, and act on a constant flow of patent disputes working their way through the courts to the highest levels. We also excel at ‘soft IP’ work spanning copyright, trade marks, passing off, data protection, marketing, international licensing and master franchising, with an impressive track record in innovative technology and advertising projects.

Clients include many of the world’s leading multinational patent originators – in particular in the pharmaceuticals and biotech sector – as well as key media and telecoms providers, well-known brands and numerous leading players in the oil and gas industry, the latter reinforcing our prominence in engineering and high-tech patents.

Our approach involves working closely with our clients, mobilising the best technical expertise to handle highly complex IP issues, including developing effective strategies for litigation, protection and enforcement, optimising revenue streams and clarifying regulatory aspects.

Meanwhile, as one of Norway’s leading corporate firms, we are a natural first choice for IP-related transactions, including licence contracts and research and development projects, as well as acting in mergers and acquisitions involving media and high-tech companies and valuable IP assets.
