Paul McGowan (Founder & Principal) and Joanne Applegarth

One of the north east legal community’s rising stars has joined Collingwood Legal to help service growing client demand.

Joanne Applegarth has moved to Collingwood Legal after spending almost a decade with one of the region’s largest law firms, where she focussed exclusively on employment law.

Joanne, who is from Whitley Bay, will be working across Collingwood Legal’s portfolio of public and private sector clients both within and outside the north east.

Joanne is the first new recruit to join the firm since we doubled the size of our Newcastle Business Park offices to allow for future expansion.

The firm recently launched a new training division in response to an increasing number of requests from both public and private sector clients over the last year, and was Highly Commended in last years’ Newcastle Law Society’s Law Firm of the Year Awards.

Joanne Applegarth says: “Collingwood Legal has built up an excellent reputation over the last three years for providing top quality legal advice on both a regional and national level.

“I’m excited at having the opportunity to be part of this and to play my part in continuing to deliver the very best service to our clients.”

Paul McGowan, founder and principal lawyer, says: “Joanne is both a technically excellent lawyer and a great person to deal with. Her skills set and personal qualities fit well with our ethos, and bringing her on to the team will quickly make a tangible difference to our continuing evolution.”
