Norway – a high quality and efficient jurisdiction for patent litigation

The Norwegian legal system has a framework that makes it a favourable choice of jurisdiction for the litigation of patents. A specialized venue accompanied by expert lay judges forms the basis for high quality judgements.

The patents may be enforced by preliminary injunctions and the courts are also relatively efficient processing main cases, which may include both infringement of a patent and invalidity. In addition, the Norwegian courts do not necessarily await proceedings in the EPO to conclude on a matter.
