First North Law is a team of North Yorkshire legal specialists, dedicated to providing professional, client-centred services to a range of public, private and third sector organisations across Yorkshire and beyond.
We have taken the knowledge, skills and expertise of an established legal team working for North Yorkshire County Council, and created an alternative business structure (ABS) legal company.
We are no longer the council’s in-house legal services team; we are an independent law firm working with a range of clients across the region. Those clients include state schools, independent schools, academies and local authority departments, as well as private businesses and charities.
Our expertise includes adult and children’s social care, education and schools law, employment law, debt recovery, fire safety, information, business and environmental services, commercial contracts, property contracts, and governance.
On your side
Our team of solicitors, legal executives and other lawyers all have a genuine desire to understand the issues that are important to you. This is what drives us to ensure we deliver pragmatic and cost effective solutions. We have an enviable background and reputation, and our team of North Yorkshire legal specialists has the knowledge, experience and expertise you need to address and resolve your legal challenges.
As a First North Law client, you have direct access to our team of experts and you will receive regular feedback on case progress and costs, ensuring you are always up to date with your case.
Quality as standard
As the North Yorkshire County Council legal team, we have held the Lexcel legal practice quality management accreditation for almost 30 years. We also comply with the Practice Management Standards of our professional body, the Law Society, which applies to every aspect of the services we provide.
We pride ourselves on consistently achieving an excellent score when it comes to customer satisfaction. We set performance indicators to manage performance, both with our internal and external customers, to maintain these high levels of customer satisfaction.
