Employee invention law

The employee invention law regulates the legal relationship between an employer and a salaried inventor. It is mainly concerned with the allowance to file and to make use of a patent invention as well as remuneration for the inventor. Some issues of labour law also play a role here.

We support the establishment of processes in your company, with which the legal requirements are implemented correctly in order to provide legal certainty in particular with regard to any legal dispute with employee inventor.

If the employer claims an employee invention, the statutory compensation of the inventor has to be calculated according to the guidelines for the compensation of employee inventions in private employment, what is quite complicated. We are happy to do this for you.
