IPR insurance - Litigation insurance for intellectual property rights

Litigation insurance for intellectual property rights - also called IPR insurance - can significantly reduce the cost risk if you have to pay large amounts of legal fees, litigation or damages to defend your intellectual property, such as patents, trademarks or designs.


Purpose of IPR insurance

Many businesses are reluctant to register and protect their intellectual property because they know that defending and enforcing it can be costly.

Especially for small and medium-sized businesses, it can be important to create financial equality vis-à-vis larger businesses that have the capacity to run lengthy legal processes.

The purpose of IPR insurance is therefore to minimize the costs you may incur in a legal dispute about intellectual property rights, and to make it easier for your business to defend itself or assert its right.

Norwegian businesses have the option of taking out IP insurance with several insurance providers, both Norwegian and foreign. With most insurance providers, you can choose between "tailor-made" insurance or a more standardised, ready-made insurance.

You must request quotes from the relevant insurance providers to obtain accurate rates.

The role of the Norwegian Industrial Property Office

IPR insurance is a general insurance agreement between the insurance company and the customer. The Norwegian Industrial Property Office does not offer insurance, and has nothing to do with these insurance agreements. The Norwegian Industrial Property Office is therefore also not responsible for the agreements you enter into with the insurance provider.

Insurance providers who offer IPR insurance to Norwegian businesses

We have compiled an overview of private, commercial insurance providers who offer IPR insurance to Norwegian customers. It only covers those providers who have asked the Norwegian Industrial Property Office to be included on the list.

Please note that the list is based on the providers' own information. The Norwegian Industrial Property Office does not carry out any kind of ranking or quality assurance of the providers or their products.

Have you made a plan for your assets?

Did you know that as much as 90% of the assets in innovative companies can be intellectual property? It is therefore important that these values are managed correctly. A well-thought-out strategy is as important to commercial success as financing, marketing and sales.
