We are a full-service law firm based in Newcastle upon Tyne serving clients throughout the UK and further afield. We have an outstanding reputation for delivering high quality partner-led advice with exceptional personal service.

With over 200 employees, including 32 partners and 120 lawyers, we are one of the largest law firms in the North East. Our client base includes large companies, owner managed businesses, healthcare professionals, leisure operators and rural businesses.

With a history stretching back over 100 years, we recognise the importance the contribution that businesses like ours should and can have on the local community and we, therefore, encourage our employees to get involved and give back to the local community in which we live and work.

Our vision is to set the standard for legal excellence and in doing so, to become the law firm of choice for businesses, organisations and individuals.  To meet our vision and deliver an outstanding service we employ individuals who understand our clients’ needs, take pride in what they do and how they do it.  If this sounds like a vision you would like to be a part of and you meet the requirements of the role below, we’d be delighted to hear from you.

The successful candidate will have a proven track record in this field and will be experienced in representing clients at interviews under caution and before Tribunals, Magistrates’ Courts and at Inquests. Whilst the firm does not currently act for any regulatory bodies, we are open to the possibility of doing so in the future and the role is also suitable for those who have experience of or an ambition to develop such a practice.
