About us

Papula-Nevinpat was founded in Finland more than 40 years ago by Patent Councelor Antti Papula. Today we serve hundreds of clients from startups to global Fortune 500 companies in Finland and around the world, including the US and China. This makes us one of the largest patent, trademark and design agencies in Finland. Our head office is in Helsinki, with branch offices in Lappeenranta, Tampere and Pori. In 2012, Papula-Nevinpat opened an office in Munich, in a move to deepen our European patent expertise through closer proximity to the European Patent Office.

We also have a strong foothold in Eurasia, as the first foreign IP company to set up an office in Russia close to 30 years ago, and we continue to be the biggest foreign presence there. We offer IP services in all of the former Soviet Union states (including the Eurasian region): Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. We file annually over 700 patent applications with the Russian Patent Office (Rospatent) and over 200 with the Eurasian Patent Office (EAPO).

With representation in both Europe and Eurasia, we are able to provide our clients a cost-effective way of protecting their industrial property rights abroad. Our experts have a profound understanding of various technical fields, industrial branches, and jurisdictions to protect your rights efficiently and reliably. Backed by our long experience in international systems and practices we make sure your rights are properly protected.
