Square One Law was set up in 2011 to challenge how legal services are delivered in the North East. Our aim was to develop an entrepreneurial firm that focusses on the needs of business leaders at its core. We measure our success by the quality of the long-term relationships we build with our clients, who trust our judgement and use our commercial skills and experience to work with them as business development partners.

In the same way that businesses have had to streamline their processes and become more efficient and entrepreneurial to stay competitive, Square One Law has stripped out rigid corporate structure, invested in outstanding people and new integrated client based technologies.

This fresh approach enables us to attract top lawyers from national and international firms, and deliver a better, more efficient service to our clients.

  • We focus on offering clients experienced based advice. We work as your business partner and not just your legal advisor. We also know how important it is to deliver a high quality service on time and in budget, and believe communication is key to the successful completion of projects.

  • We saw an opportunity to set up a more entrepreneurial law firm, so we embraced change, invested heavily in technology and talented people and focus on providing the services that businesses need. We’re not trying to be the biggest, but we do want to be the best in our chosen areas.
