[ Chamber Assembly ]
The supreme body.
Ideas are a good thing, they invite discussions and lead to innovation. But: only industrial property rights turn innovations into a reliable economic factor – and with this in mind, patent attorneys and the Chamber of Patent Attorneys are important trailblazers for progress.
Every patent attorney in Germany is – by law – a member of the Chamber of Patent Attorneys. It represents the interests of all the patent attorneys in Germany, of whom there are currently approx. 4,000 Chamber Assembly.

- adopting the professional code and statutes
- electing the Board
- supporting the training of candidates and the professional further training of patent attorneys
- fixing the amount of the Chamber dues and the budget
