Equine Lawyers in Germany

As equine lawyers in Germany, Schlun & Elseven we know that horses are more than mere animals. Horses are a passion, they are friends, they are investments and they are livelihoods. This is the reason why, at Schlun & Elseven, our lawyers are focused on providing advice and assistance in the area of equine law in Germany. In providing counsel in equine law our aim is to give your equestrian interests comprehensive legal representation.

With one of our main offices being based in the city of Aachen we have been regular attendees and supporters of the international horse show CHIO Aachen. Through our connection with the CHIO we have seen at first-hand the passion owners feel for their horses. It is this passion that brought us into the field of equine law.
