Welsh Law

Working across Wales means we need to understand the growing influence of Welsh law

Welsh law is rapidly diverging from English law. It impacts all sectors, from public services to economic development or planning law to education – and we’ve worked hard to make sure we’re experts in understanding the distinct legal and political Welsh landscape.

Lots of our lawyers are Welsh speakers, who can advise you in Welsh. Many of our non-Welsh speaking staff are attending language courses. All of our teams across the firm can advise on Welsh law, too. So, whether we’re helping you with a commercial dispute, advising on your employment contracts, or working with you on a property transaction, you can always ask us Welsh law related questions.

Some of our clients, like the Welsh Language Commissioner, who we work with on a regular basis, were even established under Welsh law. We regularly advise public sector organisations from a Welsh law angle, too. For example, the laws of Cardiff Bay often impact our advice to local authority and governmental bodies.

Listen to our podcasts:

We’ve put together a series of podcasts, updating you on the Welsh law need-to-know. We’ll be releasing several podcasts in the next few months, discussing topics from Welsh Language Standards to the Well-Being of Future Generations Act.

A heartfelt thanks to Capital Law for a first class service.
