Expertise for a more humane world.

A female-founded consultancy in Brussels, Belgium dedicated to assisting organizations advance the interests of animals in European law and policy.

The only consultancy in Brussels to assist private actors and public administrations in achieving better treatment for animals.

At Animal Law Europe, we are diligent in our quest to advance the treatment of non-human animals in European laws and policies. Our mission is to guide all parties involved in rule-making that affects the treatment of animals, such as legislation and regulations, private standards, or non-written common industry practices.

Our expertise focuses non-human animals used for all types of exploitative purposes: food and fiber, entertainment, scientific, and companionship, as well as wild animals, which are increasingly harvested as commodities.

Our field of practice is the European jurisdictions, mainly the European Union and its Member States, as well as non-EU Member States such as the UK and the US.

Our work is driven by values of non-violence, and the alleviation of suffering and exploitation. We also support and promote the development of animal law as an autonomous discipline, which places non-human animals as sentient beings at its core.
