Our aspiration for the work of a lawyer

Our Firm’s Guiding Philosophy and Principles

With the dawn of the digital age, the work expected of lawyers has changed significantly. Finding the correct balance lies in combining the modern world’s opportunities with traditional values, thus providing the ideal service for our clients. To achieve this goal, our firm makes extensive use of modern technology alongside traditional legal knowledge.

We advise both corporate and private clients across all areas of German law. Due to our interdisciplinary orientation, we advise our clients with all legal disputes. For corporate clients we offer industry-specific advice and guidance. We would be pleased to present our extensive expertise in detail in a personal meeting.

Full-Service – Comprehensive Legal Support

Our mission is to provide you with all the legal support you need under one roof. Striking up a partnership with our firm means that you can focus your attention on the important matters of running your business while our lawyers oversee all legal matters behind the scenes. From commercial law advice and contractual analysis to employment law support and insightful advice on intellectual property, working with Schlun & Elseven Rechtsanwälte means that you know you have leading legal support in your corner.

Establishing a strategic partnership ensures that you benefit fully from our full-service approach. Furthermore, such a partnership saves you time and money as our lawyers will prevent costly missteps from occurring. Avoiding legal disputes whenever possible is the most cost-effective strategy, however, in cases where the courtroom is unavoidable, our team will be on-hand to advise and represent you in all legal matters.


Specialisation is the difference between success and failure. At Schlun & Elseven our lawyers are highly specialised in their respective practice areas and regularly attend further training and seminars. Our law firm consists of certified specialists in fields such as corporate law and employment law and we have dedicated practice groups for business immigration, investment advice and many other fields. Through these dedicated teams, unique synergies can be created and solutions built around your requirements can be discovered.

Knowing that your legal affairs are in the hands of expert lawyers means that you can focus your attention elsewhere. High-speed and reliable communication methods such as our 24-hr hour hotline and video conferencing facilities ensure that you can reach us from anywhere in the world whenever you need us. Through the usage of cloud computing, our lawyers are ready for every eventuality.

Customer Satisfaction

Customer satisfaction entails knowing our customers and their requirements and being available for them. At Schlun & Elseven Rechtsanwälte, our mission is to forge deep connections with our clients built on trust, reliability and accessibility. Through our many contact options and the wide range of legal experts at our firm, clients can be assured that our team will have the answers to your legal questions.

Your satisfaction is the main concern of our customer service team. Therefore, you will regularly and automatically be sent a copy of all written arguments that we receive and submit, and you can call us 24/7. Our hotline is available day and night, including weekends and holidays, without waiting or time-consuming queries. We greatly value client feedback and listen to our customers to keep our standards as high as possible.

International Outlook

Our firm consists of lawyers with an international outlook. In our modern world, it is not enough for our lawyers to only know about German law as legal cases in fields such as immigration law, corporate law and family law regularly concern issues which cross borders. This international outlook means that we can be relied upon in complex matters such as contractual disputes in the aftermath of Brexit and in corporate law matters including expanding your business to Germany. For private clients, our lawyers regularly advise on German citizenship by descent cases and in family law cases such as international child abduction, international  divorce cases and much more.

Our international outlook means that we can advise you in English, Russian and other languages. The lawyers at Schlun & Elseven Rechtsanwälte value intercultural understanding alongside their deep legal knowledge. Wherever you are based in the world our lawyers are ready to represent you in your case.


Clients of Schlun & Elseven can be assured of our lawyers’ transparency when working on your case. Our legal team works in a manner that ensures that there is clarity when it comes to decisions made. The means of achieving this goal is that our legal team collaboratively decide our strategies and ideas with our clients, thus ensuring that they know exactly what to expect.

Our transparency extends to matters such as discoveries during due diligence reports and in our reporting on possible conflict of interest matters which may arise. When deciding to work with us, our firm will inform you of your legal right to revoke the contract and will keep you informed of how your situation will be impacted by the potential decisions made.

Tailored Solutions

Every client is unique, and each case deserves specialist attention. At Schlun & Elseven Rechtsanwälte, you will be provided with insightful advice which considers every aspect of your situation. For corporate clients, we advise you based on your company’s goals, priorities, industry requirements and characteristics. Our lawyers are fully aware that solutions which work for company’s in one industry will not do so in others. Private clients can be assured that our dialogue will be open and honest in appraising your case.

In pursuing the answers for your legal issues, we are fully committed to representing our clients in the most cost-effective manner while never sacrificing quality.  We do not use a “one-size fits all” approach and are instead committed to tailoring our solutions to fit your aims.
