Employment specialist joins Sintons
Samuel Scott arrives at Sintons with experience of supporting employers on a range of day-to-day issues, as well as representing clients in the Employment Tribunal and drafting and reviewing settlement agreements.
He has acted for clients across a variety of sectors including hospitality, finance, construction, charity and transport.
Samuel’s arrival at Sintons comes at a time of strong growth for the employment team and firm as a whole, with ongoing recruitment and new client wins helping to further develop the law firm’s capability and capacity.
Sintons’ employment team, led by Keith Land – consistently recognised by Legal 500 as one of the leading lawyers in the North of England – is regarded as one of the leaders in its field in the North, acting for growing numbers of well-known clients on a range of matters. It gained national recognition for its support of businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic, during which it made a range of resources available for free to assist during the unprecedented times.
“Sintons has a strong reputation for its employment specialism and I am very pleased to join a team known for its commitment to delivering a first-class legal and personal service to clients,” said Samuel.
Christopher Welch, managing partner at Sintons, said: “Our employment team is held in the highest regard and acts for growing numbers of businesses and organisations across the North East and beyond. We continue to see a period of strong growth, which is testament to the work and capability of Keith and his team.
“We are very pleased to welcome Samuel to Sintons and look forward to working alongside him as we work together to make even stronger progress, while being absolutely committed to delivering the best possible service to our clients.”
