Obtaining a list of law firms


If you require a list of law firms for general use, professional bodies are the best resource. In England and Wales all firms of solicitors are required to be registered with the Law Society and they are all listed on their website.

Other countries have similar organisations, usually based on geographic areas. These can be an invaluable resource. However, you should be aware that such regulatory bodies rarely comment on the individual quality of a particular firm and they may not always be completely up to date with the firm’s specialist expertise.

To find out more about choosing a solicitor, have a look at our advice page on which we go through everything you should know.

Obtaining more specialised lists

If you require a list of law firms that practice a particular type of case or are set up in a particular way, you may be able to find existing databases online. Whether this is appropriate will depend upon what you need the list for.

If you need the list for academic or journalistic purposes, then online research may well be sufficient, but you should always cross-reference with the official membership bodies such as the law society.

You may also want to put together a list of firms who might undertake work pro bono; that is, for free. Many charities will have their own databases of lawyers who can do such work in their area of interest.

If however you want to obtain a list of firms that can help in a potential case, you should be more careful.
