Voices of our clients

Christian Straßberger offers very helpful suggestions for complex problems.
Prof. Dr. B., shareholder of a state-approved training institute
To minimise problems and costs, we need the lawyer as a continuous companion who understands our business and provides precise advice. For almost 10 years we have found exactly that in Dr Baumann and his team and have successfully solved very complex challenges in corporate, contract and labour law. We particularly appreciate Dr Baumann's high degree of availability at all times, pragmatism, goal orientation, speed, competence and quality of interaction.
Mathias V., Chairman of the board of one of the five largest owner-managed communications agencies in Germany
Special thanks to Sandra for her outstanding professionalism and her mediation between the parties that has been so valuable to close the deal.
Cristiano N., Executive Chairman of a leading Italian industrial company with focus on renewable energies
Dr Baumann from SLB LAW provided me with excellent support in a personal procedure. His high level of professional competence, his argumentative fluency, his reliability and commitment are striking. Due to Dr. Baumann's friendly manner, combined with legal acuity and unambiguity, one has the necessary certainty as a client that one is really being represented appropriately.
Helmut Minor, Managing Director envenance GmbH
SLB LAW has been supporting us for quite a few years and provided us with excellent support in complex legal issues in the field of German Construction Law. Ms. Doerrie, is easily accessible, brings specialised knowledge and experience combined with a practical approach, very pleasant to work with and also easy (for a non-German company) to communicate with as is an excellent English speaker.
Legal Counsel of a Dutch Steel Construction Company
Lawyer Martin Zeil of SLB LAW provided highly professional support during the conversion of our firm into a limited liability company, allowing us to complete this complex process on time.
Sabine Radiske, CEO of TRIGA-S GmbH, Habach
Due to the complexity of our multi national company structure many law firms were not able to serve us. The SLB LAW team provided excellent support to us in establishing a company in Germany . They solved several complex issues with not only legal and tax authoritiesand but also with banks. In particular, we were convinced by the very solution-oriented and incredibly fast approach at all times.
Sertac Demirezen / VP of Navigator International, LLC USA
The SLB LAW team, in particular Sandra Bendler-Pepy, provided us with excellent support in complex corporate and energy law issues. We were particularly impressed by the very solution-oriented and pragmatic approach.
