Voices of our clients

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
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
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.
