Paul Bell


Head of Corporate & Commercial

T: 0191 211 1520

Paul qualified in the City of London before returning to the North East. He joined Short Richardson & Forth in 2014 after 25 years with Crutes & DWF, where he was Newcastle head of corporate (and a Crutes board member).

Paul specializes in corporate M&A, plus general company & commercial work.

"I work with clients who have been involved in mergers & acquisitions for many years, but also enjoy working with clients who are completely new to M&A (whether because they are making their first acquisition or selling up for retirement)."

My wife and I live in Hexham and we have 3 children. I love Tynedale, whether for walking or cycling. I am a keen swimmer, cook and gardener."
