The team, which was recently named in the top tier of Legal 500 rankings, has now been hailed by the Chambers legal listings as one of the leading healthcare legal advisors in the country. Sintons, a trusted advisor to GPs, dentists, NHS Trusts and other healthcare organisations, is already a regional leader with a fast-increasing portfolio of clients around the UK.
Chambers points to Sintons’ “growing presence” in the healthcare sector nationally, and also praises its “deep expertise” in the intricacies of NHS matters. The team were also said to be “approachable and easy to deal with”.
Amanda Maskery, Partner in the healthcare team, was top-ranked in Band 2 for ‘Partnership: Medical’, being “recognised as a leading specialist in the dental and GP sectors,” according to clients. She has a wide-ranging practice in medical partnership, with substantial experience in the drafting of governance documents, the formation of federations, disputes involving membership and expulsion, and employment issues.
Partner Victoria Armstrong, a real estate specialist, was also named as a key contact in the department.
Alan Dawson, Chairman of Sintons, said: “Our healthcare team quite rightly enjoys a regional and national reputation for its significant capability, and the latest Chambers rankings are a further endorsement of that. Legal excellence, alongside the very personal service we offer to clients, is at the heart of Sintons and everything we do, so we are very pleased that has again been recognised by an independent body.”
