Find a lawyer abroad

The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) provides lists of English-speaking lawyers abroad to help British nationals find the legal support they need.

Find a lawyer abroad

You can find lawyers:

  • by country or a more specific location
  • with a particular area of legal expertise

All lawyers on the lists have confirmed they can provide services in English.

You should do your own research before deciding which provider to use. You may also want to check if any insurance policies you have include legal cover before you contact a lawyer independently.



The FCDO does not accept any liability to any person or company for any financial loss or damage arising from the use of this information or from any failure to give information. Our lists are not recommendations and should not be treated as such. Read the full terms and conditions.

Feedback on lawyers

If you have feedback on lawyers, contact the British embassy, high commission or consulate in the relevant country. Lawyers will be removed from the list where appropriate.
