Commercial Solicitors Making Commercial Sense

PG Legal offers personal, pragmatic legal services to clients across the North East and throughout the UK from our Team Valley Head Office and second site in Stockton.

Established in 2011 by Phillip Dean, a commercial property solicitor with a proven track-record acting for regional and national high profile clients such as Morrisons Supermarkets and SAGE, we built our reputation on dealing with commercial acquisitions and disposals of all types of commercial property.

In 2012, Phillip was joined by Co-Director Jonathan Fletcher, who brought a wealth of commercial litigation experience to PG Legal, having spent 20 years with a large North East firm.

Together, they have grown PG Legal based upon the core value of providing an excellent, comfortable and transparent customer experience. This commitment to making legal processes as simple as possible for clients, with fixed-fees wherever possible, has helped build the outstanding reputation PG Legal now holds across the North East, and throughout the UK.

With people at the heart of the brand, the PG Legal team has grown to 24 staff and consultants, who work closely with clients to deliver the right legal solutions for every business.

2017 saw PG Legal’s Head Office move to larger premises at Valley House in the centre of Team Valley; coupled with our exciting recent arrangements to offer meeting rooms in Sunderland and Teesside, we continue to establish the firm as the first choice for businesses looking for personable, pragmatic legal solutions.
