Law/Patents
German term or phrase: wohlerworben
Context: "ein wohlerworbenes Recht"
The word appears in a brief synopsis of Swiss case law on the issue of viewing insurance claims as having an autonomous nature even when the insured's coverage is provided as part of his or her membership in an organization, a co-op, for example. The whole sentence reads: "Vom Eintritt des Versicherungsfalles an besitzt das Mitglied eine Forderung auf Leistung der Renten, die mit der Entstehung der Rentenberechtigung selbständigen Charakter erlangt hat und die Eigenschaft eines wohlerworbenen Rechts besitzt."
I was thinking of wholly acquired, maybe fully acquired, but would appreciate other suggestions.

English translation:duly acquired
Explanation:
The source is Romain, Dictionary of Legal and Commercial Terms.
It also gives you: esablished and vested, but they don't sound right according to your context.
Good luck!
