Employee Inventions Act

Law on Employees' Inventions (Arbeitnehmererfindungsgesetz, ArbNErfG)

For our German clients, we handle all aspects of inventions made by employees of the client/patentee.  After receiving the inventor’s description of the invention, we start with a brief state of the art search, then evaluate the patentability of the invention and, after the invention has been claimed by the client and has been filed as a patent application, we calculate the inventor’s compensation.


Employee's rights to compensation for inventions

We also offer workshops for potential inventors as well as for our clients’ management teams about all aspects of employees’ inventions.
