Specialist Newcastle Law Firm Doubles Size in a Year


A specialist central Newcastle law firm has responded to increased requests for its services by more than doubling size in 12 months.

Between July 2017 and July 2018, Peter Millican Law, which specialises in Corporate Law and Commercial Property, has increased its number of fee earners from four to nine, recruiting an Associate Solicitor, a Solicitor and three new Trainee Solicitors.

Ricky Handa, recently promoted to Associate Solicitor, joined the Commercial Property team in July 2017, followed by Trainee Solicitor, Aphrodite Christodoulou in December 2017. Gwen Fitzpatrick joined the Firm as Associate Solicitor in June 2018, bringing her 11 years of experience to the Commercial Property team. During July 2018, they will be joined by Trainee Solicitors Ella Doshi and Christina Mulholland who will work across the Corporate and Commercial Property teams. The team has been further enhanced with the appointment of Tracey Bambrough as Receptionist and Admin Support.

Peter Millican, owner of the firm, commented: “Our commitment is to our clients, and as our reputation has grown in recent years, so has our client base. We’ve recruited carefully for the right people to join our team, colleagues who have the same ethos and the same commitment as the existing team members to ensure clients continue to receive advice that is specific to their individual requirements.

“We’re delighted to have strengthened our team, and as the demand on both our corporate and commercial property teams continues to grow, we are now actively looking to recruit additional team members.”
