who we are
Over 250 qualified lawyers are personally connected
We are a network of independent dynamic law firms who know each other personally and collaborate to offer clear, cross-border legal advice. Our members advise corporate clients, government agencies and private individuals across Europe and beyond.
European Law Firm was established in 1989 to meet the increasing demand for cross-border legal advice. It was the first legal network to register in Brussels as an European Economic Interest Grouping (EEIG). Today, the network comprises over 250 lawyers across Europe.
Our policy is to have one dedicated member firm for each country, creating a more manageable body and fostering closer relationships between lawyers. Over the years, our members have worked together regularly to build up long-standing relationships – the key strength of our network.
General meetings are held three times a year to enable our members to exchange ideas and develop both professional and personal relationships.
To be the strongest network of independent law firms in Europe offering consistent high quality legal advice that clients can trust.
Collectively, our members offer all the advantages of an international firm with the added value of a more personal service.
