Collingwood Legal has scooped a top law accolade for the second time in three years.

The Newcastle-based employment law specialists were named Law Firm of the Year (1-5 Partners) at the Northern Law Awards 2019.

 The firm previously won the prestigious title in 2017.

Paul McGowan, Principal Solicitor and founder of Collingwood Legal, said: “The whole team at Collingwood Legal is thrilled to have won the Law Firm of the Year award for the second time in three years.  As the founder of the firm, I feel particularly proud of the fantastic team that we have assembled and to receive such an accolade.

“Whilst it’s really satisfying to receive external recognition, the things that really motivate us all are simply providing an excellent service to our clients who are often experiencing challenging and difficult circumstances.”

Collingwood Legal was set up in 2010 to meet a gap in the market for a focused and dedicated specialist employment law firm providing strong client service.

The firm is independently ranked as Top Tier by the Legal 500 for employment law – ahead of a number of national and international law firms.

The competition judges were particularly impressed with Collingwood Legal’s strong team ethos and the firm’s training division, which has gone from strength to strength.

“It’s been a huge honour to win this award this year,” Paul said. “On behalf of all of the team at Collingwood Legal, I’d like to say a huge thank you to all our contacts and clients in the region for the trust and loyalty that they continue to place in us.”

The Collingwood Legal team has many years of experience as employment law specialists, successfully working with a variety of public and private sector businesses across the country in defending and resolving employment issues.

The firm offers a full range of employment law services, taking an innovative approach to legal solutions, with particular experience in dealing with employment tribunal claims, business reorganisations and business transfers.
