Certified Specialist Employment Lawyers

At Schlun & Elseven Attorneys we have the opportunity to provide our clients with support from two certified employment law specialists in the form of Dr. Thomas Bichat and Jens Schmidt. In order to become a certified specialist in employment law, the lawyer in question not only has to complete the training and studies involved in becoming a qualified attorney but also additional requirements in their field of expertise. In this case: employment law.

The additional requirements for a certified employment specialist involve demonstrating to the Bar association that they have obtaining specialist practical experience as well as specialist theoretical knowledge. Once this has been accomplished it will be the decision of the Bar association to award the title of certified employment law specialist. Obtaining the required level of expertise is an arduous process and very few lawyers obtain this standard in the field of employment law. Therefore, it is easy to see why our employment law services are much sought-after by clients.
