It may concern the validity of records, contractual obligations, and whether German law will impact a particular project. The legal opinion should be sought before commercial transactions, as when clearly defined it will outline certain legal risks inherent in the issue.

Legal Opinion for Business Clients

Our corporate clients can rely on Schlun & Elseven to provide them with reliable legal opinions across legal fields in matters of commercial interest. Complex cross-border issues and projects, in particular, should be analysed and assessed by professionals before advancing the transaction. Failure to have a legal overview from experienced experts can lead to costly legal disputes down the line that may damage the enterprise.

In particular, transactions involving the acquisition or merger of companies, those involving loan and security transactions, and matters of property purchase and sale should involve the input of qualified lawyers, particularly in the event of doubt over elements.  Based on the facts of the situation, our lawyers may need information from the company register, the tax authorities, and other regulating bodies. Once we have the complete information, we can then report the results within the legal opinion. Through our legal opinion, our lawyers comprehensively assess the matter and determine whether there are legal obstacles preventing the successful conclusion of the intended deal.

Legal Opinion for Private Individuals

Private individuals also benefit from well-considered legal opinions by expert lawyers. Our legal opinions are provided in an efficient manner that sets out the facts,  identifies the relevant laws and regulations, and applies those laws to the facts. Our team will seek to answer the question asked in clearly and in an objective manner. Having a lawyer take the time to examine the legal principles involved in such complex transactions can be the difference between years of drawn-out legal disputes, and a quick resolution to the issue.

Through the legal opinion, our lawyers will inform our clients of a transaction or matter’s legal effect and will identify legal risks that need to be considered further. If litigation appears likely our team can inform our clients regarding particular documents or facts and whether they can play a role as evidence in the matter. The enforceability or lack thereof of contracts in cross-border matters can also play a major role.
