Samuel Phillips Law
Samuel Phillips Law has been supporting the good people of the North East for more than a century now – through the hard times and the good, they’ve stood by our sides. But far from being old, tired and (as most traditions seem to demand) male-dominated, the team at SPL are refreshingly, well, relatable.
Having evened out the gender imbalance you’d see in most other law firms and then some, the solicitors you’ll meet at Samuel Phillips are young and dynamic. Some are single parents who’ve turned their own experiences into a passion for helping us to know our rights a little better; others are bright young things who haven’t been lured down south by the bright lights of the big smoke, but who are dedicated to making a difference right here in the North East. One was even a lead dancer in Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance! (Ok, so we may not be able to relate to that quite as much – although you’re yet to see us down the local on a Friday night).
What unites them all is that they happen to be ridiculously good at what they do – which is why we jumped at the chance to have them as our newest experts in residence. After all, only the best will do for our readers. We’re working with them to bring you a new monthly series full of top tips and legal advice that is set to cover everything from pre-nups and divorce to discrimination in the workplace, what happens after we croak and what to know before buying a house.
