Initial Consultations for Inventors

Inventor advising takes place every second and fourth Wednesday of the month from 3 to 6pm at the Center of Patents and Standards. Advising appointments, lasting about 30 minutes, can be arranged by calling +49 241 80-94480.

During this free inventor advising, a patent attorney answers all of your questions about intellectual property rights. This affects patents, registered designs, trademarks, designs, registration procedures and requirements, employee invention rights, licensing, and more

In order take advantage of the time available, the you must provide the patent attorney with an initial inquiry result. This means that an inquiry must have been made, for example in the PNZ.

We are happy to answer questions about inquiries over the phone. We cannot guarantee that we can clarify legal matters or registrations over the phone.
