IP Strategy - Employee inventions

The German law governing employee inventions gives rights and obligations to both employees and employers in handling inventions made within a company. Disregarding those rights and obligations harbours major economic risks for both sides. ‘Ready-made’ solutions are of little help for many companies. Many years of practical consultancy work, especially for medium-sized enterprises, mean that Eisenführ Speiser has in-depth know-how in tailoring and implementing reliable and efficient processes that are compliant with statutory requirements. However complex the situation, we help companies and inventors to calculate reasonable compensation for inventors. Where necessary, we support our clients in arbitration proceedings or in litigation to assert rights.
