Corporate Immigration Lawyers Germany

The world of business is more international than ever. Working across borders and markets is now an everyday matter. In fact, remaining fixed to one country and one area can mean falling behind your rivals and losing out to your competition! When it comes to European expansion Germany is the ideal location to bring your business. Located at the centre of the continent, Germany plays a key role geographically and, as a strong European Union member, politically and economically too. With a well-educated workforce, high levels of English competence and a formidable cultural work ethic, it is not surprising that Germany is a popular country for business expansion.

However, corporate immigration also brings complications. Moving a business from one country to another, or expanding to another country, can be challenging in areas such as understanding the applicable legal system, the tax system, the political climate and other, more intangible, concerns. Even moving employees from one part of the company to a European/German subsidiary can be demanding. These inherent complications can occur regardless of the size of your business or whether you are establishing a smaller subsidiary or a European Headquarters for your business. Therefore, when it comes to corporate immigration it is advisable to have a partner available to assist you. Schlun & Elseven is a German law firm with an international outlook and we provide comprehensive assistance when it comes to issues in this field.

As a full-service law firm, Schlun & Elseven will represent your business comprehensively.

Moving to Germany

The first step in corporate immigration is of course the preparing for the move to Germany. On this front our lawyers will be on-hand to aid with the legal side of this move. Essentially, we will assist with issues involving ICT Cards, EU Blue Cards and other general relocation services for your company’s staff. The form of residency permit will of course be discussed with the company before deciding on the appropriate form for any moving staff. However, we will also offer our advice and assistance on issues relating to setting up the company in Germany and which form should your subsidiary take. All types of companies have different regulations and requirements to follow, therefore it is vital to make sure you have legal assistance in this matter. We will provide further advice on concerns about tax, suitable insurance, German real estate as well as environmental regulations and other requirements.

However, our relocation services go beyond just the legal requirements and regulations as we also provide more advice on Germany generally. Is your company looking for the right city to establish itself in? Then look no further than Schlun & Elseven! Our team knows Germany and will provide solid advice as to an appropriate location for your industry. Do your employees need information about schools, education possibilities in Germany, accommodation, language courses etc.? Once again, we will be there to provide the assistance you need! All things considered, there is a huge amount of work involved in corporate immigration that goes beyond knowing the German Residency Act and that is why we will be there with you on your journey.
