Legal Market Overview
The four key markets in the North are the main hub of Newcastle; County Durham, including its two commercial and legal centres in Darlington and Durham; Cumbria, which is primarily focused around Carlisle; and the Tees Valley, a relatively self-contained market predominantly based in Stockton-on-Tees. The region’s most prominent firms include Ward Hadaway, Newcastle firms Sintons and Muckle, and Womble Bond Dickinson, now a transatlantic firm but which traces its northern roots back to legacy firm Dickinson Dees.
