Who we are

Sintons is a full service law firm based in Newcastle upon Tyne. We have more than 170 people including 31 partners and over 120 specialist lawyers, making Sintons one of the largest law firms in the North East and the UK.

Established in 1896, Sintons has a strong sense of tradition combined with a progressive approach. We are proud to provide clients with high quality legal advice underpinned by personal service.

“Regional heavyweight on a path of steady growth” (Legal 500).

People Matter

Our people make Sintons unique and play a central part in helping us to stand out in a crowded legal marketplace. As one of the first law firms in the North East to receive the investors in people status, we have created an environment aimed at providing a personal service with first class levels of client care.

From start to finish you will deal with a single private client specialist so you always know who is acting on your behalf. This person will always be there to reassure you and answer any questions you might have.

To maintain the highest standards, each client receives a satisfaction questionnaire at the conclusion of their time with Sintons, whilst Feefo, an independent assessor, contacts a cross section of clients to obtain objective feedback on Sintons and the service we provide.

You can visit the our people section of our website to find out more about our private client specialists or read about what many of our clients have said about us.


We care about helping those we live amongst and are committed to giving something back to communities, both locally and nationally.

Recognising the needs of others and seeking solutions is a fundamental part of who Sintons are. Providing care and assistance outside the legal world is of supreme importance and is the cornerstone of our corporate social responsibility programme.

This is made possible by the significant amount of time our staff invest in voluntary activities and the money we donate to national and local charities.

For anything further, one of our specialists would be delighted to meet you either in our office or in your own home to talk through your requirements and answer any questions. Please contact us at any time.
