Two well-established law firms have merged.

Alderson Law LLP has merged with Whitley Bay-based Hipkin & Co with experienced personal injury and civil litigation specialist Mark Hipkin becoming the firm’s sixth equity partner.

The merger enables Alderson Law LLP, which has offices in Blyth and Morpeth, to extend into Tyne & Wear.

With 26 years’ experience as a sole practitioner, the merger enables Mark Hipkin to increase the range of services available to his existing client base while also bringing his legal and business management expertise to Alderson Law LLP.

Mark Hipkin, partner at Alderson Law LLP, said: “I am looking forward to bringing my legal and management experience to this growing practice. Merging the two firms represents an exciting new phase for Alderson Law LLP.”

Guy Goodings, partner at Alderson Law LLP, said: “Hipkin & Co has an exemplary reputation and fits perfectly with our commitment to delivering the best possible service to clients.”
