Welcome to Gibson & Co. Solicitors Ltd
We’re a leading law firm based in the North East of England.
Founded in 1715, we hold the distinction of being the longest established family-run practice in the country.
We have offices in Newcastle upon Tyne, Hexham and Bellingham. We have a strong private client base and, since partners Toby and Jane Gibson joined in 2003, we offer a niche commercial dispute resolution practice.
Most of this side of our business is London or overseas-based. We receive a substantial amount of referral work from magic circle firms and regularly find ourselves facing major London law firms in our disputes.

It attracts work from high-profile regional, national and international clients..." In 2013, we were awarded Band 1 ranking for Banking Litigation by Chambers.
