We can help you with all your questions about the patent process. If you are not sure whether it is a patent or another type of protection that you need, we can explain the difference between them. 

Examples of how we can help you

  • You need to research a certain area of technology – we can guide you through various databases and help you get started with your search.
  • You would like to know if a certain foreign patent is protected in Sweden, or if it can be validated in Sweden – we can let you know its current status.
