Solicitor qualifies into corporate and commercial team


A trainee solicitor has qualified into Sintons’ highly-esteemed corporate and commercial department, following two years with the firm as a trainee scoring a double success, through qualifying as a solicitor and securing a permanent position at the firm.

Jonathan Tutu held seats in departments across the Newcastle-based firm during his training, where his strong analytical skills and commercial awareness impressed clients and colleagues alike.

Following his recent qualification as a solicitor, Jonathan has now taken a permanent corporate and commercial role with Sintons, in what is one of the biggest and most experienced teams of its kind in the North of England. Collectively, the department has over 200 years of expertise, and has advised on some of the most significant and complex transactions in the region of recent years.

Jonathan said: “I have loved my time with Sintons and am delighted to have secured a position here upon qualification. The training I have received has been very challenging but fantastic, and has been crucial in my development. The team is superb and the levels of experience and expertise we have here is unrivalled. I am looking forward to continuing to learn from my colleagues while collectively building the department even further.”

Karen Simms, head of corporate and commercial at Sintons, said: “Our congratulations go to Jonathan on qualifying as a solicitor – a real milestone in his career which we are delighted to recognise and reward with a permanent role in our team. He has been an asset to our department during his time here and we look forward to continuing to support his development as a lawyer and seeing him thrive.

“Our team is rightly regarded as one of the best in the North of England with a strength and breadth of experience that few other firms can match. Together with our renowned and unrivalled levels of client service, Sintons continues to be the law firm of choice for many leading businesses, entrepreneurs and investors both in the North East and nationally.”
