Director Lee Carter commented: 'Seamus is vastly experienced in all aspects of civil litigation and his leadership will further strengthen our position in the North East.

'We already have an impressive list of clients who trust us to ensure their hard work is properly rewarded. But our long-term aim is to be widely known as the number one Costs Lawyers in Newcastle and the North East area.

'Seamus will continue to reaffirm our commitment to quality service before building on the network of claimant law firms and clinical negligence solicitors we work in partnership with.

'We are currently creating and moulding an excellent team of skilled Costs Lawyers in Newcastle and we have every confidence in Seamus’ ability to lead our North East branch so that it achieves long-term success.”

The company has also welcomed four new team members at its Beverley head office: Sam Payne, Matthew Cleary and Cherisay Juillet have been recruited as Costs Draftspeople, whilst Kelly Smith has joined in an administrative role.
