Local roots, national ambitions

Dickinson Dees is recognised as the region’s leading law firm and is top-ranked across the broad range of legal services it provides.  The firm employs over 600 people across its five offices, over 500 of whom are based in the heart of Newcastle’s vibrant Quayside.  It is from this base that, in recent years, the firm has opened a new Yorkshire office in Leeds and has expanded its London presence, underlining its national practice and ambitions. 

Dickinson Dees is a North East firm which can trace its roots back several hundred years. It acts for many of the region’s major corporates as well as high net worth private clients and public sector organisations of the region.  Lawyers at the firm work on an increasingly nationwide level and the excellent connectivity of NewcastleGateshead makes this both a viable and an attractive option for its clients throughout the UK.  

The firm has a mixture of staff from the North East and recruits who have joined from elsewhere to benefit from the fantastic quality of life that the region offers.  Each year the firm recruits a number of trainee solicitors, many of whom have enjoyed their experiences at one of the region’s top quality Universities and chosen to stay to pursue their careers. 

Dickinson Dees actively contributes to the economy alongside the supportive business community of NewcastleGateshead.  It is also proud of the part it has been able to play advising on projects that have underpinned the regeneration of the area, working alongside both Newcastle and Gateshead Councils and private sector developers. 

John Marshall, Senior Partner of Dickinson Dees, explains: “Dickinson Dees is proud of its roots here in NewcastleGateshead and we recognise the excellent platform this has given us to develop our business.  

“We are pleased to play our part in maintaining a strong professional services sector to support the many excellent businesses based or operating from here.  The North East economy never ceases to amaze me with its adaptability and resilience. It’s a really great place to do business.”
