Hempsons establishes Newcastle practice

Healthcare firm Hempsons is to launch an office in Newcastle to open in September 2009.

The firm has secured office space and has begun the recruitment process to staff the practice. It will be the firm’s fourth office, adding to those in London, Manchester and ­Harrogate.

Hempsons managing partner Janice Barber said: “We’re expanding in Newcastle to provide a better and North East-focused service to our clients in the region.”

Barber will be the partner-in-charge at the practice and will spend some of her time in the office. There are no immediate plans to have a partner stationed full-time in Newcastle.
