Business Immigration

Jens Schmidt is a lawyer at Schlun & Elseven Rechtsanwälte PartG mbB. As an expert in business immigration, he offers comprehensive legal advice and representation in all German immigration law matters – to both private individuals and companies. Furthermore, he provides equally expert and committed legal assistance in German employment & labour law – for both employees and employers. Contract and corporate law are further fields of activity in which Jens Schmidt provides his expertise.

Transfer of professionals to Germany

Jens Schmidt is a member of our Business Immigration team, which supports business clients in the employment and transfer of foreign professionals to Germany. On their behalf, he handles the entire application process for the required residence permit (visa, EU Blue Card, ICT Card, etc.) and ensures that all immigration law issues are clarified.

Our practice group has established a reputation as an essential, professional legal service provider concerning obtaining residence permits and visas for foreign professionals. Through years of working with the relevant German immigration authorities, we are well acquainted with the pitfalls of the application process. We know how to prevent unnecessary delays through the utmost diligence.

Support in Establishing Companies in Germany

Mr. Schmidt advises business clients, investors and entrepreneurs who seek to benefit from what the European Economic Area (EEA) offers. His legal advice covers all stages of establishing a company in Germany: from preparing all documents, filing applications and attending notary appointments to obtaining entrepreneur and investor visas.

The legal protection of company formations or acquisitions in Germany often presents foreign investors with particular challenges, as it is vital to avoid the pitfalls of a jurisdiction with which clients are generally unfamiliar.

Legal Assistance for Employees

As a member of our employment law practice group, Jens Schmidt has in-depth knowledge and many years of experience in German employment law. In this context, his field of activity ranges from advising clients on termination law issues to drafting employment contracts, service contracts and contracts for work and services.

With his help, legal pitfalls such as hidden clauses can be efficiently avoided. Due to his expertise, he can immediately recognise whether your employment contract complies with the legal requirements or whether your employer’s reference contains inappropriate wording.

Whether it is an unjustified dismissal, an outstanding wage payment or a holiday that has not been granted – Jens Schmidt will provide a clear and practicable solution for you and will stand up for your rights with the necessary assertiveness.

Jens Schmidt’s main areas of practice in this field also include claims for damages and liability issues, training and further training issues, equal treatment issues, maternity protection, the Part-Time Work and Fixed-Term Employment Act and annual leave law.

Legal Assistance for Employers

Mr. Jens Schmidt supports our business clients in their capacity as a company owner, managing director or manager in all phases relevant to German employment and labour law. By advising in all aspects – from job advertisements to employment to termination – our business clients can fulfil their responsibilities for the company and its employees. Mr. Schmidt’s legal assistance is also invaluable in such difficult matters as the leasing of employees and labour migration.

As an experienced labour lawyer, he is very familiar with the problems of employment relationships from both the employee’s and the employer’s perspective and can find efficient solutions that avoid time-consuming and costly legal disputes.

Whether drafting a complex international contract, challenging a commercial transaction or facing the legal consequences of a breach of contract – Mr. Jens Schmidt advises our clients regarding all German contract law matters. He is also available to represent them out of court and, if necessary, also in court.

A valid contract is the basis of every successful legal and business relationship, especially if it is to be long-term. A lack of care in drafting contracts often leads to time-consuming and costly legal disputes. Mr Schmidt is the ideal contact for preparing and reviewing contracts and enforcing claims under contract law.

His distinguished professional expertise and many years of experience as a lawyer for contract law allow him to work out clear and practicable legal solutions with worldwide validity for you.
