Citizen – SO Legal exclusive cooperation

In July 2021, Citizen entered into a transnational framework agreement with the English solicitors’ firm SO Legal Ltd. Approved by the Chairman of the Bar, this agreement, provided for in article 16-1 of the French National Rules of the legal profession, fosters Citizen’s international stature. 

SO Legal Ltd is a prestigious law firm, with offices in London, Eastbourne, Brighton, Uckfield and Hastings. A leader in innovation and communication, SO Legal shares the “pro-client” vision of its French counterpart. Citizen and SO Legal have placed at the heart of their collaboration the objectives of transparency, responsiveness, accessibility and efficiency.

Through this exclusive collaboration, the two firms intend to leverage their respective expertise. Although Citizen and SO Legal remain separate entities, each subject to its own rules of professional conduct, they have chosen to develop a close working and communication relationship. For example, Citizen benefits from the assistance of its colleague solicitors whenever the handling of complex cases involving the Common law requires it.

This cooperation thus enables Citizen and SO Legal to offer consistent legal services on both sides of the Channel! In a context marked by new uncertainties (Brexit, pandemic…), but also by the constant internationalisation of economic relations, the two firms intend to contribute to the rapprochement of their two countries, by assisting French and British individuals or companies in the best possible way. 

Discover all the services & advantages you will benefit from, thanks to the exclusive Citizen – SO Legal collaboration.

The other collaborations forming the Citizen network

The Franco British Network

Established in 2013 as a special branch of the CCI Dordogne, the FBN is now an independent association dedicated to assisting individuals and businesses and developing Franco-British relations.  The FBN regularly organises warm and pleasant social or inter-professional events. Citizen, whose competence extends to Dordogne, is very involved in Franco-British issues. It was therefore very natural for the firm to become an active member of the FBN.

The Circle for Law and Liberty

The Cercle for Law & Liberty brings together lawyers who are committed to the defense of constitutional rights & principles. The Circle actively defends “first generation rights”.
