North East Connected


Teesside law firm, Cygnet Law, has been named Team of the Year in the Family Law category at the prestigious Northern Law Awards.

The Northern Law Awards celebrate legal talent within the region, highlighting the successes of those practising and working in the legal industry in the North of England.

The law firm, which has offices in Darlington and Redcar, was presented with the accolade at a ceremony which took place on 23rd June at the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead.

Cygnet solicitor, Jessica King, from Loftus, also triumphed at the awards, winning Trainee of the Year.

25-year-old Jessica joined Cygnet Law in March 2020 after completing the Legal Practice Course at Sunderland University and securing a Master of Laws. She undertook her training contract with the firm and qualified as a solicitor in March 2022.

Jessica is now a valuable asset in Cygnet’s Public Law department, representing parents, grandparents and Local Authorities in ongoing care proceedings.

The wins come at an exciting time of expansion for the firm. After building a strong reputation from its base in Redcar over the past 20 years, and successfully opening a second office in the town in 2021, it recently opened a new office in Darlington.

Stacey Phoenix, director and solicitor at Cygnet Law Darlington, said: “We are delighted that our talented Family Law team have been recognised on a regional level. The award is a testament to the hard work and dedication that they show as they continue to go above and beyond for our clients.

“Jessica being awarded Trainee of the Year demonstrates the commitment that she has shown to the legal profession and to her clients. She is incredibly talented, and we are very proud to have her as part of the Cygnet team.”
