Meet Our Talented Legal Team
For any issues where multiple parties have a dispute to resolve without criminal proceedings, we can act on your behalf to handle your claim in court. We’ll take the time to evaluate all the circumstances of your case, and recommend an action plan.
In cases of unfair dismissal or professional disputes, we have a team of experienced employment lawyers who will try and resolve your case through mediation and negotiation – but we’re prepared to represent you in at Employment Tribunal or in court if we exhaust all internal procedures.
As in innocent party suffering injuries caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be suffering lasting effects from personal injury. We can seek compensation on your behalf to cover loss of earnings, support of dependents or care and rehabilitation costs.
Dorian Williams is our top personal injury lawyer.
For medical or clinical negligence can be claimed if a diagnosis, a treatment or procedure is incorrect and takes a negative impact upon your life. We can help you investigate your claim and try and help improve your quality of life.
Our medical negligence team is managed by Dorian Williams and we’d love to be able to try and help you improve your quality of life if you have unfortunately suffered due to medical negligence.
Our criminal defence lawyers have years of experience dealing with criminal cases. We’re available 24 hours and 7 days a week to provide representation if you ask for one of our lawyers and the police will contact us on your behalf.
We carry out our services across North East England, owning a Criminal Defence Service contract, meaning we can provide comprehensive publicly funded service (legal aid) in some cases.
We support commercial clients with quality legal advice where legal issues may get a bit tricky. Our corporate lawyers can advise you on business mergers, commercial contracts, shareholder or partnership agreements, franchising, employment law, disputes and civil litigation.
