Cartmell Shepherd are a law firm with five offices across Cumbria and Northumbria.

Our history

The firm has well established roots in the area going back over 200 years; formed in 1989 following a merger of two firms, Little and Shepherd and Cartmell, Mawson and Main, we pride ourselves on our reputation; one which has been built on the provision of quality legal services and excellence in client care. Although we are a firm with a huge amount of history, we are modern and vibrant with a robust and very capable team in all areas in which we specialise. 

Our structure

Based in our five locations the firm is departmentalised with each of our seven departments headed by a Director or Senior Solicitor. This structure allows us to specialise in each specific area of law; when we advertise ourselves as experts we mean it – our solicitors, paralegals and support staff focus on their particular practice area and take great pride in delivering quality service to our wide client base. We really care about our clients. We want to provide them with not only the best legal advice but the best experience too, and the best possible impact on their businesses and personal lives.

Our departments are:

•           Private client

•           Agriculture

•           Company and Commercial

•           Commercial Property

•           Residential Property

•           Family

•           Dispute Resolution (including Personal Injury)

Cartmell Shepherd prides itself on the experience and professionalism of its staff and the specialist knowledge gained from working with people and businesses throughout the region.
