The Brussels Office of the UK Law Societies closed its doors on 31 October 2022.

The Joint Brussels Office represented the Law Society of England and Wales, the Law Society of Scotland and the Law Society of Northern Ireland in Brussels and the European Union (EU).

Over its 30 years of operations, staff met with numerous EU officials and elected representatives to bring the voice of the UK legal profession to the EU.

In the last six years, we followed the Brexit process and the EU-UK negotiations. We led of numerous pieces of evidence for the UK parliament, UK government, the European parliament and many industry bodies in the EU and the UK.

Over the past three years, we have supported hundreds of members through practice notes, guidance, meetings and webinars.

We would like to thank everyone who has worked with us and contributed to everything we did – our members, trainee solicitors, supporters, followers and our colleagues in London, Belfast and Edinburgh.
