Europlaw Group acts as Legal Counsel for Countries, Embassies, and Foreign Nationals. Foreign embassies/missions face a range of legal issues on a daily basis, from establishing business contracts with service providers to litigation and criminal defense representation for mission personnel. Anticipating the cost of legal counsel provided by attorneys is one of the most difficult challenges when budgeting for mission operations.

Europlaw Group can provide in-house attorneys, legal counsel and lawyers to foreign embassies through our association with The International Association of Lawyers (UIA- Union Internationale des Avocats) worldwide. Europlaw Group is a current legal services provider and proudly offers legal services to various foreign embassies within the Republic of South Africa.

Europlaw Group offers international foreign embassies the option of a monthly flat fee for a range of predetermined services. The flat-fee arrangement can help the foreign mission save many thousands of dollars in unexpected and unbudgeted legal costs.

Europlaw Group’s directors, partners and associates have extensive experience and expertise within the diplomatic corps and are advising and served legal and labor advisory services to many of the Foreign Embassies in the Republic of South Africa. The Department of International Relations and Cooperation is the supporting channel for all foreign Embassies located within South Africa and Europlaw Group offers an added value service to their respective National Ministries, clients, investors and businesses of the country in question and to build long term mutual business collaborations between the various foreign Embassies located in South Africa and Europlaw Group.

•    Business contracts and negotiations

We also offer services to our international clients to Apostil original documents as required by law enforcement agencies and corporate organizations worldwide via the prescribed requirements of all foreign Embassies in the Republic of South Africa and via the confirmation of both the South African Police Services and the Department of International Relations and Cooperation.
