The history of Acapo dates back to 1924 when the company was founded as AS Bergen Patentkontor.
Bergen Patentkontor merged with Actio-Lassen AS and became Acapo AS in 2006. Our office in Trondheim opened in 2006.
In 2010 the Oslo based office “ABC-Patent Siviling. Rolf Chr. B. Larsen AS” merged with Acapo.
As from January 2019, “Fluges patent as” was merge into Acapo . This means that in addition to the three offices in Oslo, Bergen and Trondheim, we now also have an office in Fredrikstad.
Today we are therefore conformably present in 4 cities in Norway, and one of the leading Intellectual Property (IP) consultancy firms in Norway.
Our vision is to be the preferred global IP consultant for Norwegian companies, and the preferred Norwegian IP consultant for international companies.
Acapo operates as one company even if we are located in several places. The head office is situated in Bergen. However, we work completely electronically and all offices are connected into the same systems and under one management. In addition we have a joint administration, one Legal and one Patent department. We are therefore working together as one unit with all the benefits that comes with this. At the same time we have the advantage of being present in four different cities and therefore closer to our clients. We also have the benefit of being able to offer positions in different cities and therefore can attract and pick the best possible team.
