Construction collaboration creates unrivalled regional expertise


Growing law firm Sintons is to join forces with a nationally regarded specialist construction organisation, in a unique partnership which will create unrivalled construction expertise in the North East.

Newcastle based Sintons is collaborating with niche London based construction law firm Davies & Davies Associates, which is recognised in its field for the depth of its expertise in the construction sector.

The move increases the offering to clients of both firms and creates unrivalled capability in the North East. It will enable the team to advise on the most complex construction matters around the UK and internationally. Sintons’ Construction team including Partners Hilary Parker and Graeme Ritzema, together with solicitor Alex Rayner, will work closely with Davies & Davies.

It is the latest in a series of strategic moves by Sintons, and comes only weeks after the high profile addition of house building development specialist Alan Harkness.

Nigel Davies, Director of Davies & Davies, and a dual qualified solicitor advocate and chartered surveyor, chartered arbitrator, panel registered adjudicator and mediator, said: “Through this collaboration and combination of expertise, we can collectively offer a full service to construction clients of all sizes and capabilities.  Sintons is a hugely respected law firm, with a reputation for the outstanding capability and service they offer, so we are very pleased by this new agreement.

“This is a very exciting opportunity for us to work together and, as a result, to broaden our reach and to establish ourselves as being among the leading players in our field nationally.”

The collaboration also sees Sintons working closely with Blue Sky ADR, chartered surveyors and alternative dispute resolution specialists who have a long standing affiliation with Davies & Davies. 

Peter Barnes, Director of Blue Sky ADR, who is a chartered arbitrator, chartered surveyor, panel registered adjudicator and mediator, said: “This agreement represents the opening of a new and exciting chapter in our continuing business development.”

Alan Dawson, Chairman of Sintons, said: “Through this collaboration with a nationally regarded construction specialist, we can offer a service of the highest quality and capability to clients across the UK. Our collective experience of construction law and dispute resolution is unrivalled in the North East, and enables us to collectively take on work in this sector of any magnitude and complexity.

“Sintons, as one of the region’s leading law firms which boasts many specialisms, is also able to offer additional legal services to clients of both Davies & Davies and Blue Sky.

“We are delighted to have formed this collaboration, and are confident of giving a significantly enhanced service and offering to our clients as a result.”
