Employee inventor law

Inventions that are created by employees in the context of an employment relationship are subject, in particular in Germany, to special provisions that govern the rights to the invention. Under the German Employee Inventions Act (Arbeitnehmererfindungsgesetz), the employer is entitled to claim inventions of this nature, under certain conditions.

We are happy to advise you in the field of employee inventor law and in particular we have a great deal of experience in the administration of employee inventions for industrial businesses. We will, if required, assume full responsibility for the administration in this respect, from claiming the invention, through drafting remuneration agreements, to calculating the relevant remuneration.
