An idea that was conceived, and reduced to practice prior to working for the present employer.

I had an idea for a device that was conceived, and reduced to practice prior to working for the present employer. My question is, can I (on my own) apply to and have ownership of the patent? what type of legal document needed?

Hi Donald!

It is our policy not to provide legal guidance - we would suggest speaking with a patent attorney to review your options.

Best of luck!
