Leading North East litigation team expands with new appointment

Leading North East law firm Muckle LLP has strengthened its disputes resolution team to meet the growing need for its services.

Matthew Brady, from County Durham, has joined Muckle from Northumberland Country Council, where he provided in-house advice in relation to contractual and procurement matters.

He says: “I am thrilled to have joined Muckle LLP’s top ranked dispute resolution team at an exciting team for the team. Being born and raised in the North East, I am keen to support and assist all companies and individuals within the region in relation to any dispute matter they have.

“What attracted me to Muckle was its reputation as a firm that is not only successful within the North East and wider region, but one that looks after its staff and clients and nurtures from within. The departments within Muckle are integrated and work hand in hand, and I really value the team approach.”

Matthew’s expertise lies within all manner of contract disputes, from small value to larger high court disputes. Breach of contract claims, restrictive covenant claims, intellectual property and shareholder disputes are also areas on which he has advised.

Susan Howe, Partner and Head of the Dispute Resolution team said: “Matthew is a fantastic asset to our team and has seamlessly settled into the firm. His background in the public sector really adds value to our team. We look for people that can bring specialisms when hiring and for Matthew, this is his wide network of contacts within the North East, and we look forward to seeing him grow within the firm.”

The Dispute Resolution Team handles a wide range of disputes including commercial, construction, real estate, intellectual property, technology and professional indemnity claims, as well as providing alternative dispute resolution, emergency applications and advice on regulatory authorities.

Legal 500 UK ranks the team in the top tier for commercial litigation in the North and lists several of the team as ‘leading individuals’. To find out more about the dispute resolution team, visit: https://www.muckle-llp.com/what-we-do/dispute-resolution/
