Bruno Lasserre is the Head of the French Conseil d’État (State Council). After graduating from Ecole Nationale d’Administration (ENA) in 1978, the French national school for civil service, Bruno Lasserre became a member of the Conseil d’État.

From 1986 to 1989, he created and then ran the legal service at the Directorate-General for Telecommunications. Between 1989 and 1997, he served as Director for Regulatory Affairs, and then Director General for Posts and Telecommunications. He returned to the Conseil d’État in 1998, where he became assessor at the 10th Chamber (1998–1999), chaired the 1st Chamber for three years (1999–2002), before becoming Deputy-President for all litigation activities (2002–2004).

After serving as Member of the board of the Conseil de la concurrence (Competition Council) (1998–2004), he was appointed President in July 2004, and in this capacity pushed through a major reform that transformed it into the Autorité de la concurrence, responsible for merger review and competition advocacy in addition to antitrust enforcement. He chaired the Autorité until September 2016. At that time, Bruno Lasserre came back to the Conseil d’État to head the department for Home Affairs (2016–2018).

He was appointed Vice-President of the Conseil d’État on 16 May 2018, the highest position at the Conseil d’État since it does not have any president. He took office on 29 May and was formally appointed to the role by the Prime Minister on 6 June 2018.
