PATENTSCHUTZengel  strives not only to do excellent work but also to meet the social responsibility of a modern company. This includes, among other things, the creation of flexible work opportunities for employees so that personal life and work do not compete with each other but can be successful together. We also support local, regional and international social projects.

Map Family-friendly company Thuringia

The Thuringian Business Association, which currently represents 35 employers', business and trade associations in Thuringia and works with seven Thuringian companies and cooperates with other associations, displays a map on its website on the subject of ""Family-friendly Business Thuringia"".

We are delighted that our social activities have now also been listed on the "Family-Friendly Company" map.

Street Food Festival Ilmenau

We support the Street Food Festival in Ilmenau (in 2019 again as main sponsor). The event is organized by students of the Technical University of Ilmenau and brings together inventiveness and internationality with student commitment. We believe that this is a wonderful platform for discussions that bring together nations and cultures, so we are happy to be able to contribute to it.





We are among the first members of the network GESUND ARBEITEN IN THÜRINGEN (GAIT). The aim of the initiative of BARMER and DGAUM is to establish a network of Thuringian companies that are committed to the health of their employees. The network serves the mutual exchange of experiences, for example in the development of a company health management system. We would be pleased if numerous other companies would participate in this network and would be happy to help you get in touch with them.

dry lands project - Sri Lanka

As we communicate daily with people from all over the world through our work, we also want to make a small contribution to improving living and educational conditions in poorer regions. As a small company, it is important to us that our donations go directly to those who need our support. Therefore we are pleased to have found people in the Dry Lands Project e.V. who have been building and running a children's home for girls in Sri Lanka with great commitment for many years. The main goal is not only to provide the girls who are admitted with a safe shelter but also to give them the chance of a self-determined and happy future through permanent education and care.

The team around the initiator of the project, Mr. Frank Lieneke, also includes Ms. Dipl.-Komm.-Psych. (FH) Julia Fischer, a young woman who grew up in Thuringia, whom we were able to meet personally.

We support the admirable personal commitment of the employees of Dry Lands Project for the children in Sri Lanka with a project sponsorship and individual donations.

Erfolgsfaktor Familie

Our law firm is a member of the business network Erfolgsfaktor Familie.


The network is an initiative of the Federal Minister of Family Affairs and the President of the DIHK. It is the largest nationwide platform for companies interested in and committed to family-conscious corporate management.

Family friendliness has long played a major role at PATENTSCHUTZengel. Among the employees there are many mothers who especially appreciate the flexible working hours. For a better compatibility of work and family, employees can work part-time. There is also the possibility of teleworking, which is regularly used by several employees. The firm has had good experience with its family-conscious personnel policy. So far, all employees have returned to the firm after parental leave.

We are proud to support such a project. The event took place on 24 and 25 June 2017 at the TU Ilmenau.
