Double shortlisting for Sintons in Northern Law Awards 2023


The specialist family and dispute resolution teams at Sintons has been shortlisted for a prestigious award in recognition of their expertise and dedication to client service.

Both teams have been named as finalists in the Northern Law Awards 2023, which acknowledge the outstanding efforts of businesses and individuals working in the legal sector across the North of England.

Sintons’ family and dispute resolution teams are both previous winners of these awards in 2019.

Sintons’ family team – a previous winner of this award, having secured it in 2019 – has a long track record in supporting people in matters of separation and divorce, as well as in protective planning for the future. It is a specialist in high net worth matters, as well as cases involving children and those with complex assets.

Its shortlisting for the Northern Law Awards is the latest recognition for the specialist team, after winning praise from both Legal 500 and Chambers 2023 as a “knowledgeable and respected” advisor committed to delivering legal and client service excellence.

The highly esteemed dispute resolution team, which has a top-tier ranking by Legal 500, has a long track record in supporting businesses and individuals regionally and nationally in achieving the best possible outcome in the event of a dispute.

Hailed as “excellent”, it works across a wide range of sectors and has some of the eminent names in dispute resolution in the North of England in its team, including partners Hilary Waters – also head of department – Angus Ashman and Graeme Ritzema.

The family and dispute resolution teams were the only department at Sintons to enter this year’s awards, and team members will be attend the ceremony on June 22.

Christopher Welch, managing partner of Sintons, said: “We are of course delighted to see Sintons shortlisted twice in the Northern Law Awards, which are regarded as a benchmark of quality and ability in the legal sector in this region.

“Sintons is known throughout the business for our commitment to securing the best possible outcome for clients, working hard on their behalf to achieve that in what can often be very complex situations.

“This is true of both our family and dispute resolution teams, both of which are well used to negotiating sensitive situations to secure the best outcome for their clients. Our reputation in both of these very specialists areas of law is hard earned and well deserved, and we are very proud of the independent recognition we continue to secure.”
