“Excellent” charities team praised by Legal 500 2019
The specialist charity team, which comprises expertise from across the firm, is praised for its “excellent” service levels and the wide variety of charitable organisations it acts for. It wins particular recognition for its work in advising private clients on the formation and administration of charitable funds, and its work with religious organisations – including the Church Commissioners for England, Church of England (Newcastle and Carlisle diocese) and Methodist Church Managing Trustees.
Sintons is one of few law firms to act in the highly niche area of faith-based law, with partner Laura Peace winning praise for leading its continued growth.
Testimonials quoted in Legal 500 2019 hail Sintons as being “highly efficient and effective” in this area and offer “good quality advice and work, delivered on time and with reasonable costs”.
Mark Quigley, managing partner of Sintons, said: “Our charities team combines expertise from across Sintons to provide a comprehensive service to a host of organisations and individuals in this specialist area. In areas such as faith-based and religious work, we are one of a very small number of law firms nationally to have expertise, which ensures Sintons regularly work on a national basis in this sphere. It is excellent to again have our work with charities recognised by Legal 500 and to be confirmed as a leading advisor in the North of England.”
