Founding Elena K Lawyers in Australia was a decision that came to Elena Koulikov after working for many years as an Associate and a Senior Immigration Consultant/Solicitor with a global immigration law firm and a number of large corporations. Being a migrant herself, Elena has a personal understanding of the difficulties and struggles her clients may face during the visa process.  The unique combination of her love for law, wealth of experience and passion for helping people allows Elena to provide services of a high standard and achieve the desired outcome.

In addition to English, Elena is fluent in Russian and Hebrew and is a great help to her Russian and Hebrew – speaking clients.

Outside of work, Elena Koulikov is an avid reader who loves travelling and yoga. She is also very passionate about animal welfare and supporting various cat and dog rescue organisations, in both Australia and overseas. We would like people to know more about one of these wonderful organisations called Soi Dog. Not only do they work to end the dog meat trade throughout Asia, but they also help homeless and abused animals and respond to animal welfare disasters and emergencies.
