CURO AS is an intellectual property law firm founded in 1970 by Mr. Reiel folven (1941-2014) in the region of Trondheim in central Norway.

Curo AS can assist you in protecting your inventions/products by patent, trademark or design, which gives you exclusive rights in the market. We also perform preliminary examinations, e.g., patent search, at different stages in product development and innovation, including assessment of risk of infringement, and monitoring of patents and patent applications, as well as design or trademarks.

We have juridical experience and can give advice concerning intellectual property rights, e.g. patenting, copyright, piracy, infringement and conflicts about copyright, including law suits.

A Norwegian patent, design and/or trademark application can be filed abroad, e.g. as a PCT application through WIPO. All our patent attorneys are certified and skilled European Patent Attorneys that can represent our clients directly in front of the European Patent Office (EPO). Our network of international law firms is worldwide, and we are able to assist you in filing and handling patent, trademark and design application worldwide. This simplifies your expansion to international markets.
