We are a full service law firm based in North East England serving clients throughout the UK and further afield. Established in 1896, we have an outstanding reputation for being approachable, trustworthy and providing practical, pragmatic and robust advice.
With over 170 people including 30 partners and over 120 lawyers, we are one of the largest law firms in the region and pride ourselves on providing our clients with the highest quality, partner-led legal advice and exceptional personal service. ‘A stalwart player in the North which regularly attracts national clients to its office in Newcastle‘ (Legal 500).
Our people make us unique and play a huge part in maintaining our distinctive culture. As one of the first law firms in the North East to receive the Investors In People status, we provide a working environment geared totally towards providing first class levels of client service. Visit our people section to find out more about our staff.
With a history stretching back over 120 years, we have a significant affinity with the North East and the communities within which we work. We are immensely proud of the proportion of work that comes from existing clients or personal recommendations, which is a testimony to the service and value we have provided to generations of businesses and families over the years.
The firm has recently been re-accredited for the Lexcel benchmark, becoming one of few law firms to secure it at the first time of being assessed. Sintons won praise for its robust standards and commitment to client care. The firm takes its legal and regulatory obligations very seriously, an area which is overseen by Steve Freeman.
Our Corporate Social Responsibility Programme is critical to our success and is borne out by the significant amount of time we invest in our CSR activities and the money we donate to good causes. We encourage everyone to participate in our CSR programme with our staff selecting their charity of choice on an annual basis.
Keeping our clients informed of matters relevant to them is important to us. In a world in which laws, legislation and policies change faster than ever before, we keep our clients informed in a variety of ways. Whether it is through seminars, hospitality or networking events, or through press releases or direct mail, we believe it is important to provide the updates that our clients require.
