North East law firm to support "ambitious" local growth via Tees Valley partnership

Leading North East law firm Muckle LLP is backing the region’s growth plans following the appointment of a four-year contract to deliver legal services to Tees Valley Combined Authority.

Muckle LLP will be one of seven law firms to provide services for all the organisations within the Tees Valley Combined Authority Group, including the Teesworks site and Teesside International Airport, to help it deliver a range of “ambitious projects”.

As part of the four-year deal, Muckle LLP will be offering a range of services and initiatives for the wider good of the Tees Valley to support young people, communities and businesses in the area.

These include mentoring programmes, volunteering services on a pro bono basis, offering careers advice, engaging with schools, colleges and universities to help young people, businesses, and charities.

The Tees Valley region has been in the spotlight since the Treasury and other major government departments announced their high profile moves to Darlington, which is expected to act as a catalyst for further growth.

Alison Walton, partner in the commercial team and head of public procurement, said: “Supporting people, communities and businesses across the whole of the North East is at the heart of everything we do, and we’re delighted to have been appointed to support the Tees Valley Combined Authority Group.

“This is such an exciting appointment for us and we’re proud and honoured to be playing our part in supporting charities, communities and organisations across the Tees Valley region.

“Our specialist legal skills are second to none and as a nationally-renowned firm we are looking forward to supporting some of the Tees Valley’s most ambitious projects at such an important time for the region.”

Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen said: “We’re delighted to have signed Muckle LLP as part of our new legal framework to support the game-changing projects we’re delivering across Teesside, Darlington and Hartlepool, including Teesworks, the Teesside Freeport, our airport and much more.”
