One of the region’s longest established law firms has invested in Sunderland with a new office at the North East Business and Innovation Centre (BIC).
Jacksons Law Firm, which is celebrating its 140th anniversary this year, already has offices in Teesside and Newcastle and with 70 members of staff, including 10 partners and 30 legal experts, the firm offers a wide range of businesses and personal legal services to clients in the North East and throughout the UK.
Paul Clark, an associate solicitor specialising in employment law, is now working from the BIC’s Business Lounge to establish a presence in Sunderland. After attending a networking event hosted by the BIC, Clark identified an opportunity to have a cost effective presence in the city, Paul explains:
“We are well established in Teesside and Newcastle and have an excellent reputation in the region for advising on business and personal matters.
“There are a number of growing businesses and start-ups in Sunderland and all along the A19 corridor so because of the BIC’s great location and the firm’s regional footprint, it seemed like the ideal opportunity for Jacksons Law Firm to pursue.
“I had already considered setting up a base at the BIC and my belief was reinforced after attending a networking event in the Business Lounge. I didn’t need much convincing that this was the place for me. With a selection of high calibre space at the BIC, not to mention the potential to work with so many impressive businesses based here, I am confident that this will prove to be a successful venture for everyone concerned.”
