Carter Burnett is delighted to be on the expansion trail again – as we prepare to welcome four new team members and open the doors to our North East office. 
To strengthen our existing team of Costs specialists, Sam Payne, Matthew Cleary and Cherisay Juillet have been recruited as Costs Draftspeople, whilst Kelly Smith has joined to fulfil an important administrative role. 
Having also recruited Sean Linley as a Senior Costs Draftsman at the end of last year, we now employ 19 team members to help us operate in this highly-skilled area of the law. 
From 1st July 2021, we will grow our national footprint even further by opening a Newcastle office (pictured above) which will be managed by Seamus Kelly, an experienced Solicitor Advocate. 
Explaining the strategic appointment, director Lee Carter said: “Seamus is vastly experienced in all aspects of civil litigation and his leadership will further strengthen our position in the North East. 
“We already have an impressive list of clients who trust us to ensure their hard work is properly rewarded. But our long-term aim is to be widely known as the number one Costs Lawyers in Newcastle and the North East area. 
“Seamus will continue to reaffirm our commitment to quality service before building on the network of claimant law firms and clinical negligence solicitors we work in partnership with. 
“We are currently creating and moulding an excellent team of skilled Costs Lawyers in Newcastle and we have every confidence in Seamus’ ability to lead our North East branch so that it achieves long-term success.”
