Michael Cook Law Firm Limited is an established, boutique law firm operating from our head office in Houghton-Le-Spring, Tyne & Wear. Due to continued success and growth across all service areas and plans for expansion, we opened our second office in Seaham, Co. Durham, in April 2022.

The expectations of clients has risen considerably over recent years, and poor service is increasingly less likely to be tolerated. It is therefore not only in order to comply with the beliefs of the practice’s management that the provision of a quality service is required: it is necessary for the practice’s success. It follows that all personnel within the practice must judge their actions from the client’s viewpoint, and be aware that in addition to the provision of the highest levels of technical legal expertise, clients have a right to expect that their lawyers will be:

(i)         available;

(ii)        approachable;

(iii)       comprehensible;

(iv)       prompt; and

(v)        courteous.

Our client sectors vary from individual private clients, partnerships, limited companies, LLP’s, pension funds and charities.
