Sintons strengthens Real Estate team


Law firm Sintons has further strengthened its highly-rated real estate team through the addition of two new lawyers, and the return to work of another.

Newcastle-based Sintons has appointed specialist solicitors Vinaya Jigajinni and Paul Stevens to add to the expertise in its department, which is one of the biggest and most capable real estate teams in the North East and acts for major clients across the UK.

Vinaya joins from Watson Burton and handles a wide range of property matters of all complexities, and has particular experience in acting for lenders and investors.

Paul moves to Sintons from Whitehead and Low LLP and is a specialist in landlord and tenant matters, dealing with commercial sales, purchases and leases.

The department also benefits from the return of well-known solicitor Joanne Russell, who has been on maternity leave. Joanne has significant experience in dealing with public sector clients, including supporting schools in their conversion to Academies.

Mark Dobbin, Partner and Head of Real Estate, said: “We are well known and highly rated across the region and far beyond for the real estate experience and expertise we have here at Sintons. The size of our department, and the expertise we have within it, enables us to handle a wide range of transactions for some of the biggest names in the UK property market.

“We are delighted to welcome Vinaya and Paul to our team, and to welcome back Joanne, as we continue to grow and develop, and invest in our people.”
