Leading North East law firm Sweeney Miller Law has cemented its commitment to the region by moving its Sunderland base from the Ashbrooke area of the city to a more spacious and modern office space north of the river.


Sweeney Miller Law, which provides legal services to businesses and individuals from its offices in Sunderland and Newcastle, has enjoyed a period of significant and sustained growth in both staff and clients from across the North East region and nationwide. This growth has prompted the move across the River Wear to facilitate further expansion.  


The riverside area has recently been a magnet for huge investment into the city. The new premises will be in the midst of the planned regeneration of this area and in particular, the proposed new Crown Works Studios development, which has garnered a lot of attention.


The new premises, Sweeney Miller House, has undergone a significant refurbishment to align with the firm’s Newcastle office, modern brand and ambitious approach. It boasts a significantly larger footprint than the firm’s former Wearside base, at nearly 10,000 sq ft, and features a welcoming reception area, suite of meeting rooms, boardroom and event space, and a spacious staff break-out area as well as ample parking for staff and clients. The location also provides excellent regional and national transport links to the A1 and A19 and easy access to Sunderland city centre using public transport.


The building has a prestigious past, as it was notably inaugurated by the late Queen Elizabeth II in May 1993, during a visit to Sunderland with the Prince of Wales, when it was home to the Homeworthy Furniture factory and more recently, was the home of a large claims company. The additional space will enable the firm to develop its services for individual and business clients in the region across its key practice areas of conveyancing, commercial property, company and commercial, family law, dispute resolution, private client and landlord and tenant.


The opening of Sweeney Miller House will be marked by drinks reception in late April for the firm’s clients and partners and will also be attended by The Right Worshipful the Mayor of the City of Sunderland, Councillor Dorothy Trueman.


Sweeney Miller Law Managing Partner Surbhi Vedhara commented on the move:
“While our office in Mowbray Villas has served us well for many years, our continued growth of both team and workload has provided us with an exciting reason to look to the next chapter of Sweeney Miller Law and move to premises that can facilitate our ongoing expansion. We've always had a base in Sunderland, and the new facilities will allow us to continue providing excellent service to our clients in the area, the region, and further afield. We are excited about the opportunities that Sweeney Miller House presents for us and very much look forward to what the future holds.”


Sweeney Miller was supported by Mario Jaconelli, Director at Lofthouse and Partners, with the selection and acquisition of the new Sunderland premises.
