Since having joined WINHELLER Attorneys at Law, Thomas Schwab mainly handles general contract, corporate and business law matters. Thomas Schwab drafts all kinds of business contracts, operating agreements, bylaws and general terms and conditions, enforces our clients’ claims against belated debitors and regularly drafts comprehensive legal opinions.
Besides his general business and contract law practice, Thomas Schwab specifically focuses on advising German and other European clients on all US immigration and visa law issues. He advises our clients who intend to travel or immigrate to the US for personal or business reasons on all applicable visa requirements and makes sure that our clients are well represented during the entire application process before the US General Consulate. Thomas Schwab takes care of any preliminary strategic considerations before applying for a visa and accompanies our clients until the desired visa is finally issued.
Oftentimes the visa application process is closely linked to questions of US corporate and international tax law. This is especially true with regard to all visa categories that require a substantial investment in the US. In these cases, Thomas Schwab relies on his in-house colleagues and our of counsel experts and cooperating partner firms in the US. Together with them he takes all necessary steps for setting up and properly structuring the US business.
At Freiburg University, Thomas Schwab not only studied law but also enrolled for philosophy, musicology, English and French literature. Currently, Thomas Schwab is further developing his legal skills by taking part in the course for becoming Certified Contract & Trade Law Specialist.
