The U.S. Embassy London, United Kingdom, assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the following persons or firms. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department of State or the U.S. Embassy/Consulate. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance. The information in the list on professional credentials, areas of expertise and language ability are provided directly by the lawyers. You may receive additional information about the individuals by contacting the local bar association (or its equivalent) or the local licensing authorities.
In English and Welsh practice, the legal profession is divided into two quite separate categories: Barristers and Solicitors. The primary function of the former is to argue cases before the higher courts. All other legal work is handled by solicitors, and only a solicitor can retain a barrister. As barristers do not deal directly with the general public, only solicitors are named in the attached list.
The Solicitors Act (1974) permits all solicitors to act as commissioners for oaths.
Lists of solicitors practicing in Scotland and Northern Ireland are available from the U.S. Consulates General at Edinburgh and Belfast respectively.
