North East Law Firm

Blue triangle icon

Mattersmith is a regulated solicitors practice based in Morpeth, committed to improving the productivity of legal and contractual processes. We have over 30 years experience of international legal practice and so deliver City-quality services from our base in the North East.

We support our clients by taking the load off everyday matters so that they can concentrate on the big and strategic issues of the business. This includes providing NDAs or confidentiality agreements, SaaS agreements, managed services agreements, distribution and other channel partner agreements, and more. We can help with drafting and negotiating the agreement or by preparing and automating a template for you to create your own drafts systematically and reliably.

Our Services

Non-Disclosure Agreements

Non-Disclosure Agreements

We specialise in quickly and accurately turning around non- disclosure agreements and other agreements that are typically associated with negotiating a deal, such as letters of intent, heads of terms, and hold-harmless letters. This frees up your team to focus on critical business matters. Whether you wish for us simply to help with the writing of an NDA, want to outsource the process entirely from drafting through to negotiation and agreement, or use the Mattersmith platform to do the work yourself faster, we’re here to help you make NDA handling more productive.

Software licenses and agreements

Software licenses & agreements

If your business licenses software, uses applications via SaaS, or makes software available to customers, then we can help by drafting robust templates, negotiating specific and bespoke agreements, or assist you efficiently to review them yourself.

Channel Agreements

Channel agreements

Whatever your business’s role in the supply chain, if you partner with a company whether as an introducer, seller, or distributor, we can help you to conclude the appropriate channel partner arrangement, and when you agree them frequently, we help you save time and cost by improving the productivity of your processes.



All too often legal contracts can delay the commencement of projects, or worse, cause the relationship to break down completely before the project is underway. We are pragmatic negotiators whose sole aim is to help clients reach a deal and follow up swiftly with a contract that finalises the agreement.



If you take care of contracts and agreements in house, then outsourcing this to us at Mattersmith can save you valuable time. On drawing up an NDA through our team, you can benefit from up to 30% cost savings and 130% productivity gains.

Data protection

Data protection

It is more important than ever to ensure you have the appropriate data protection, privacy and cookies policies in place and ensure you comply with the UK GDPR.
