North-East law firm’s growth continues with new partner

The North-East’s oldest law firm has appointed a new partner as part of an ambitious expansion programme.

Akkelin Harris has become the 12th partner at BHP Law, leading an eight-strong team of experts in the Wills, Trusts and Probate department.

Akkelin, who was born into a farming family in The Netherlands, joined BHP Law as a Senior Associate in 2022, having been attracted by the company’s commitment to investing in talent and expanding its range of services.

“I love working in Wills, Trusts and Probate because there’s a lot of client contact, and it’s so rewarding to help clients through a vulnerable time of their lives,” says Akkelin, who is based at BHP Law’s Durham office on Mandale Business Park.
