Two North East firms have merged to create a major player within Newcastle's second tier.
Mincoffs from Tyneside and Jacksons from Teesside will create a 21-partner firm, Mincoff Jacksons, with a combined turnover of around £10m. The merger will put it in the same league as Newcastle's Muckle, Sintons and Crutes.

Mincoff Jacksons, which will go live on 1 October, will be headed by Gold and Jacksons' current senior partner Kevin Fletcher.
