Papula-Nevinpat's story

Papula-Nevinpat was founded by Antti Papula (1943-2005) in Helsinki in 1975.

At the time, Antti Papula saw the IP sector beginning to change and the need for IP services poised for big growth. With determination he began to build up a new company that would address this as well as put customer interest and success as its founding principle.

It’s from this determination that our company values of today have grown. They guide us in how we do business with our customers and how we work with each other. At Papula-Nevinpat, our values are about trust and a positive working atmosphere; about personal development in our work and ourselves; about being brave and creating services that stand out in the market; and as our founder first envisioned, about putting customer benefit as the polestar for all that we do.
