Newcastle law firm looks to add 100 new jobs

Newcastle’s legal sector is to benefit to the tune of 100 new jobs.

Chronicle Live reports law firm Norton Rose Fulbright is to create more than 100 new jobs with the launch of a legal process hub on Newcastle Quayside following a year-long pilot in the city.

The paper added that the hub has grown from an initial team of four, based in serviced Regus offices, to employing a 28-strong team of lawyers, non-lawyers, paralegals, legal technologists and process designers.

That workforce is now set to grow further to around 100 over the next two to three years, following the firm’s move into a permanent office in early November.
