General information and terms and conditions


Find a Lawyer

1. Overview

“Find a lawyer” is a service provided to the general public by the European Commission and the participating national bar associations. The Commission has made this service available to facilitate access to justice in a cross-border context by allowing EU citizens and legal practitioners to easily locate a lawyer throughout the EU.

2. Terms and Conditions

By using this service you agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions.

You agree to use this service exclusively for its intended purpose – to find a legal professional (lawyer) in order to seek his or her services or for taking professional peer contact. You shall not use the service, or any personal data returned by the service, for any other intent or purpose, and in particular in relation to carrying out commercial, marketing or advertising activities.

You are not allowed to copy in an automated fashion (harvest), and/or distribute the data received through the “Find a lawyer” service via any means. You are allowed to link to the European e-Justice Portal and its pages.

In addition to these Terms, the Terms and the privacy disclaimer applicable to the European e-Justice Portal fully apply. You may consult them here.

The European Commission may revise these Terms at any time without prior notice and you should always refer to the current version of these Terms as published on this web site.

The applicable law is Belgian law and the Belgian courts are competent in case of dispute.

3. Limitation of Liability

This service is provided “as is” and on “best effort” basis. The European Commission and the participating bar associations disclaim any and all liability, either explicit or implied. In particular we cannot guarantee the up-to-date state of the data, its correctness or ensure uninterrupted service availability.

4. Use of cookies

We use cookies with the sole purpose of providing you with an enjoyable user experience. We do not store any personal data in these cookies, nor do we share them with third parties.

5. FAQ

Question: Where does the data come from?
Answer: The data on lawyers is derived from the registers of the participating bar associations.

Question: Is the search in real-time?
Answer: Yes, the search is in real-time and connects directly to the relevant bar organisation’s register.

Question: Why can’t I search in all EU member states?
Answer: For the time being not all bar associations in the EU Member States participate. The European Commission is continuously working towards ultimately extending the service coverage to all EU member states and bar associations.

Question: Why aren’t all search criteria available for country X?
Answer:
Because of legal and technical constraints not all bar registers allow a search based on all search criteria. This may change in the future.

Question: I am experiencing a technical difficulty / the service is not available, can you please fix it?
Answer: We cannot ensure the 24/7 availability of the service or the availability of any bar organisation’s register at a given point in time. Should you experience systematic service unavailability or another technical issue you may notify us and the Commission will do its best to rectify the problem as soon as possible.

Question: I am a lawyer registered in a participating bar organisation and the service does not return a result on me / the information is wrong / I want to be removed. Whom shall I contact?
Answer: Please take contact with your relevant bar organisation of registration. The Commission does not have access nor can modify in any way the bar organisations’ data. You will find contact information below.

Question: I have another question, whom can I contact?
Answer: Please see below.
