The City of London Solicitors' Company is a working company and is unusual among livery companies in that all our members are required to practise or to have practised as a solicitor within one mile of the Bank of England or at Canary Wharf. A solicitor who is a member of the Company is a member of a livery company, fostering goodwill and fellowship between City solicitors and sharing in the wider traditions and historic procedures of the City of London.
For many years, the Company also functioned as the local Law Society for the City of London but in 2007 the City of London Law Society became a separate body. However, the Company keeps close links with the CLLS and acts as its social and charitable arm with a keen interest in the welfare and development of our profession.
The Company was also a founding member of the Financial Services Group of Livery Companies and has played a leading role in its activities to support the Lord Mayor on his overseas visits and within the City. For more information visit http://www.liveryfsg.org.uk
The Company's business is conducted by its Court, comprising the Master, Senior Warden, Junior Warden and Stewards together with 15 Assistants and up to 4 Additional Assistants. The Company employs a Clerk, a Secretary, an Administrator and a Beadle.
