For ambitious young lawyers starting out, heading for one of the leading regional firms will provide excellent opportunities. In terms of range and complexity, the work will be the same as you find in any City firm, just on a slightly smaller scale (i.e. multi-million pound rather than multi-billion pound). The northeast has its own mega-clients – including Nike, Go Ahead, Arriva, Sage Group and Nissan – and leading regional law firms attract major national clients in any event. In terms of experience and challenge, regional leaders will provide all you need – and more.
