Introducing ... The Growing Commercial & Private Family Offer From Our Wynyard Office

  • Posted


Gillian Hammond, Helen Hunt and Matthew Smith are the newest members of our ever expanding services at our Wynyard office.

Gillian and Helen have collaborated to deliver a full service Family Department to advise and assist in privately funded cases.

Partner, Brian Farrell who heads up the Private Family Team said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for us to offer our Private Family service from Wynyard. It fits in perfectly with the holistic approach the whole team at Wynyard have in creating something special for the region’s business community.

“Gillian and Helen are doing a fantastic job and although it is still very early days they are keen to seize this exciting opportunity, not only for the firm, but for them both to be able to offer their expertise from Wynyard for the surrounding geographical area.

“The Wynyard office is offering the full breadth of Private Family legal services as the need for one has become apparent alongside the rapid expansion of Wynyard’s Corporate Team’s growth as a whole.

“Whether you’re in need of a pre/post-nuptial agreement or a divorce our specialist team can now help and advise you.”

The need to expand has also seen Matthew Smith join our Corporate Team alongside Associate, Craig Malarkey and Partner, John Walters. Matthew is a welcome addition to a team whose expertise and reputation is growing amongst the North East’s business community.

John Walters who heads up the Corporate Team at Wynyard said: “With the firm continuously growing we are always looking to add bright and enthusiastic people to our team. Last year saw a surge in enquiries and new relationships with local businesses, large and small. We were really under pressure to find the right person to tackle the challenge so to speak.

“Matthew fits that remit perfectly and we are very pleased to bring him on board. We are excited about the potential the Corporate Team at Wynyard brings to the firm’s approach to providing a full and broad ranging service for all manner of business matters.”
