The pandemic has been tough for many businesses but one law firm is coming out on top. 

Cygnet Law, a Family Law Firm from Redcar, is looking to further expand their business and take on three more staff. Cygnet Law has been established for well over 20 years and specialises in family and property law in Redcar, Cleveland and the Tees Valley. 

Cygnet Law is experienced in many areas of law including conveyancing, domestic violence, child protection and much more. They have excellent relationships with a number of vital charities, businesses and Local Authorities in the North East and are a key member of their community.

They have worked with a number of charities in the past helping to raise funds for a number of great causes including Mind, The Alzheimer’s Society and Ted’s light, a charity that provides vulnerable children going into emergency foster care comfort in the form of their own teddy bears and night lights.

The firm took on multiple staff during the pandemic with one member proving so valuable in his training role the firm took him on full time. Another member of staff has recently become qualified within their role while others are well on their way to reach their goals with Cygnet Law’s support.

The firm is now looking for a Head of Conveyancing, Solicitors / Legal Executives / Clerks for the Public Law Department and a Solicitor with experience in family law to grow their team.

The three new roles could be very beneficial for local solicitors who are looking to take the next step in their career, or their first. Two of the roles are entry-level positions and means newly qualified solicitors can take their first real step into the world of law and begin an exciting career. The firm is happy to support the workforce of the future and already has an apprentice legal assistant in the business. 

Speaking on the workforce of the future Peter Medd, managing director at Cygnet Law Stated “It is important that the legal sector attracts keen, committed young people into the profession to ensure a future generation of appropriately skilled employees.”
