If you are looking for a law firm in the region that may have merged, changed its name, or no longer be in existence, then the Newcastle Law Society may be able to help. Our records of law firms and solicitors that have operated in the Newcastle upon Tyne area date back to the late 1800s. We can often suggest lines of enquiry indicating where the records of merged and closed-down firms might now be found – if for example they have been passed to another firm or subsumed into another practice.
The Newcastle upon Tyne Law Society covers the area from Berwick upon Tweed to Durham City. We do not hold any records of firms or solicitors in Sunderland which has its own local law society.
Please complete the form below to request assistance. Include as much detail as possible about the law firm you are looking for together with any relevant dates.
Additionally the Law Society of England & Wales retains certain historical records and may also be able to assist with your search.
