The Giles Hunter Partnership

About GHP

The Giles Hunter Partnership was created from the well-established firm of Giles Hunter Power & Co that has operated in the Stanley, Chester le Street and Consett areas for a period in excess of 30 years. It was created to ensure the steady expansion of private and commercial legal work within the areas of Derwentside and Chester le Street.

We consist of two Partners and their experienced support staff. Mr Giles Hunter and Mr John Sheehan are Solicitor Partners with over 60 years experience between them and have recently formed The Giles Hunter Partnership with the express purpose of providing excellent legal services in the fields of Conveyancing, Personal Injury, Wills and Probate, Divorce and Matrimonial work together with commercial legal services.

Our work is complimented by provision of efficient IT services but we endeavour to ensure that the personal service to our clients continues to be our main priority.
