Is inventing actually work?

Inventions and proposals for technical improvement by employees, officials and university students are subject to particular legal regulations. These regulations lay down obligations that are often not met.

The attorneys at ROTHKOPF are well versed in the vagaries of these regulations. We can offer advice on all legal matters relating to employee inventions and proposals for technical improvement.

Our attorneys have many years of experience in advising both employers and employees on employee invention law and representing them before boards of arbitration and in court, a job requiring particular sensitivity to the particular working relationship.

We help companies set up efficient invention notification systems. If you wish, ROTHKOPF can also set the invention notification system up as an “external patent department”.

When it comes to employee invention law, we can advise and represent you in the following areas:

  • Your invention notification system and its organization
  • Remuneration
  • Disputes before boards of arbitration and in court
