Immigration Law

We support you in enforcing your rights and answer questions about German immigration and residence law. We also advise on secondment, e.g. on social security issues ( A1 certificates).

We advise you on aliens and residence law

Immigration law generally governs the entry and residence of persons who do not possess German citizenship. Our advice focuses on labor migration, i.e., when foreigners enter the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany with the intent to take up and pursue employment and to reside in the country. We aim to find the best possible residence permit for the individual client. We also offer comprehensive advice subsequently, from compiling the documents required for the respective application to register with the responsible foreigners authority after arrival in Germany.

We further advise both the individual and the (potential) employer on other practical questions that may arise during already existing stays for employment (such as changes of work). Issues relating to labor law, social security law, and tax implications will of course be considered as well.
