ONE of the region’s leading law firms is celebrating its 18th year in business by opening its fifth office.
Ranked No.1 by the Legal 500 for personal injury in the northern region, Browell Smith & Co opened its new premises on Linthorpe Road in Middlesbrough this month.
The additional office will allow the law firm to be more accessible and provide its extensive range of services to clients living in and around Teesside/living in all areas of the north east.
With telephone lines open 24/7 all year round, Browell Smith & Co now also offers a walk-in service, allowing clients to access legal help and advice for many issues including occupational diseases, road traffic accidents, abuse compensation, employment law, wills, trusts and probate, mis-sold financial products and conveyancing.
Philip Browell, senior partner at Browell Smith & Co said: “We are delighted that our new office is now open. With clients located throughout Teesside and the north east region, the opening of the Middlesbrough office in addition to our other region-wide offices, will allow us to further enhance the service we offer to clients by ensuring that they are always located close to a Browell Smith & Co office.
“To celebrate 18 years of success is a testament to our staff and the clients that we work with. We are excited for the future and our ongoing plans include the opening of several more offices over the next few years which will create further jobs for the region.
“When the business was originally established our key aim was to build up a strong, local brand that was recognised throughout the north east and I feel we have successfully achieved this goal. As the methods of providing legal services change you have to evolve as a business and by continuing to have client care at the heart of what we do, our clients are some of our strongest advocates.“
Mr Browell continued: “In an ever changing marketplace we also have extensive development plans in place for the services we provide. Clients come to us for a range of reasons, whether they’re looking for advice on an employment matter or support after an accident that wasn’t their fault. Making our services accessible to clients no matter where they are located is vital to our continued growth.“
Browell Smith & Co has offices located in Newcastle, Sunderland, Northumberland and Middlesbrough. All of the offices offer a walk-in service with no appointment necessary. Several of the offices also offer extended opening hours during the week and on Saturday mornings.
