THE LAW FIRM
ELC stands for “External Legal Counsels”
We are your external legal department that not only advises you nationally and internationally on legal matters but also offers your company the same level of support as a highly qualified in-house legal department.
In addition, we are experienced litigation specialists who represent your interests in court and in arbitration proceedings in the event of legal disputes.
We provide qualified, pragmatic and expert legal consulting services – without cumbersome expert opinions, but with short response times and transparent costs.
Our consulting focuses on helping you achieve your business goals quickly and effectively. Your company should be able to “do business” and not “cease and desist”.
Our law firm was established based on a philosophy of offering companies the services of an external legal department. This is why ELC Rechtsanwälte employs experienced corporate lawyers and business attorneys who know what makes companies “tick”.
Our comprehensive legal expertise is based on our deep understanding of the economic activities associated with entrepreneurship. Our close ties to your company give us valuable insight into your company’s unique approach and structure so that we can offer you tailored legal advice in key national and international fields of law. In addition to answering legal questions and drafting contracts, we also conduct individual in-house training courses to minimize your company’s exposure to legal risks in the future. At the same time, we have the necessary expertise to ensure that you are also well represented and successful in court as well as in national and international arbitration proceedings in the event of legal disputes.
We have an extensive network of proven specialists for any matters and issues outside of our consulting spectrum, especially in an international context.
