Sintons’ Licensing team highly rated by the 2016 Legal 500


The licensing team at Sintons has again been rated by Legal 500 as one of the best in the North, with head of department Sarah Smith named as a leading individual for a fourth consecutive year.

Sintons has again been named as a top-tier licensing firm by Legal 500 2016, and was praised for its expertise and deep knowledge of the leisure sector in which it operates, which enables its clients to enjoy a premium service.

Sarah Smith, Partner and head of licensing and gambling, was again named as one of the top lawyers in the North of England.

Sintons’ licensing team is one of the most highly-respected in the region for its work with leading leisure operators and its ability to successfully handle complex and controversial applications.

The Legal 500 is widely regarded as the clients' guide to the best law firms and top lawyers in the UK. Research is based on feedback from clients, submissions from law firms and interviews with leading lawyers and a team of researchers who have unrivalled experience in the market. 

Alan Dawson, Chairman of Sintons, said: “Our licensing team enjoys an unrivalled reputation across the region and beyond for its expertise and knowledge, so it is very pleasing that we have again been recognised by Legal 500. Sarah Smith is a true leader in her field and is quite rightly regarded by many as the ‘go to’ person for licensing matters.

“Sintons is very proud of its reputation for outstanding legal advice and deep personal service throughout the firm, and we are very pleased that Legal 500 has again recognised us for this.”
