The City of London Law Society is one of the largest local Law Societies in the United Kingdom. There are 17,000 solicitors practising in the "Square Mile", who account for 15% of the profession in England and Wales. The CLLS was originally part of the City of London Solicitors' Company which was founded in 1908, but in 1969 a separate Committee structure was set up to deal with all professional business and since 1986 this has been known as the City of London Law Society.

Following the introduction of Corporate Membership of the Society in 2006, which allowed firms to have individual membership for all of their solicitors practising from their City of London offices, the membership of the CLLS increased significantly and now includes over two thirds of the solicitors practising in the City of London.

In 2007 the City of London Law Society formally separated from the City of London Solicitors' Company to become a freestanding local Law Society, confirming its position as the professional representative body for solicitors and law firms in the City.

The Financial Services Lawyers Association (FSLA) provides a forum for the open exchange of views and the dissemination of knowledge and ideas relating to financial services law and regulation. We seek to achieve this by hosting a series of social and instructive events, available for free to members.


Based in London with offices in New York, Mishcon de Reya services an international community of clients and provides advice in situations where the constraints of geography often do not apply. The work we undertake is cross-border, multi-jurisdictional and complex.
Our clients are dynamic and sophisticated and we reflect that in our belief in challenging the conventional or accepted ways of working. We like to solve problems quickly. We fiercely guard our clients’ interests, recognising the significant nexus between business affairs and personal affairs and the ways in which this affects our clients.
We appreciate the privilege of sitting alongside our clients as a trusted advisor. Building strong personal connections to our clients and their businesses is important to us. It is for these reasons we say ‘It’s business. But it’s personal’.
