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.
