As you know following domains are registered on a domain:

1- Registrant Company Name
2- Registrant Name

In disputes between parties;

If both is different consequently company is owned by another perconsequentlyn than registrant name, company owner can get domain from registrant? What do you do if company owner ask it to be transferred to him?

The registrant company is not required unless it's registered for a company and marked/defined that way.
As a provider, I won't get in the middle of one of these. Only the named registrant can request changes, not the business he represented. I personally believe it's still the named individual that has ownership and control, but in cases where they left the company or died, the company is likely to gain control through arbitration.

I think the domain name should be specified in the inventory list in the company transfer, is not he?

Also if payment made by company owner and registrant company is specified, can he ask to get domain from registrar? I had this situation before and the lawyer could not find a solution. I fixed this problem by reconciled the parties. But every provider may experience similar issues.

It's not up to me to arbitrate such things. I just provide a registration through a registrar. If the company has a dispute with eh employee/representative whose name is on the registration, they need to settle that externally. Until told otherwise (by the named registrant or a higher authority such as the registrar or ICANN), the name in the registrant field is the owner.

Because almost all employment contracts mention it that anything acquired or created by employee on behalf of the company during discharge of their service belongs to the company. So a domain name acquired by an employee for the company belongs to the company irrespective of who is listed as the registrant.

In a lot of cases the name of the domain is a registered trademark of the company as well - so good luck trying to steal it away from the company.

If the company had such a provision when this was registered, they can force the named registrant to hand it over or change details and so on. It's not up to me to decide.

The ones I've seen over the course of my 17+ year professional career had mentioned such ownership.

I usually list the client company as the Registrant and myself as the Administrative, Technical, and Billing contact.
