Court of Protection service continues to grow at Sintons
The specialist Court of Protection service at law firm Sintons is continuing to grow and attract work from around the UK, with one of the region’s most promising lawyers leading its further development.
Sintons’ Court of Protection offering, which supports individuals and families in applications to the court in cases where mental capacity has been lost, has been growing strongly in the recent past with increasing levels of instructions being received on a national basis.
The team, which brings together specialists from across Sintons’ nationally-renowned neurotrauma and wills, trusts and probate departments, is regarded as being one of the leading advisors in its field in the North of England with significant potential for further growth.
Sophie Robinson, a specialist lawyer, is leading the growth of the Court of Protection offering within the wills, trusts and probate team. She is well known and highly regarded for her work, and is frequently cited as a high-potential young lawyer who combines strong legal capability with outstanding client service.
Recently, Melissa Gill, a specialist paralegal, was appointed to support Sophie and the team in their work as the Court of Protection service grows both in terms of size and caseload.
Sophie said: “Our Court of Protection service rightly has an outstanding reputation and the fact we are being instructed to handle matters from across the country is testament to that. The quality of our legal advice, combined with our absolute commitment to clients, ensures we stand out from the crowd. There is a huge amount of opportunity for further development and our growing team is very well placed to take advantage.”
Paul Nickalls, head of the wills, trusts and probate team at Sintons – of which the Court of Protection team is part – said: “We have seen strong levels of growth in this area of the business and Sophie is doing an excellent job of driving that. She is a hugely capable lawyer with an outstanding and very caring manner with clients, which is such an important combination in an area of work such as this. Working alongside our neurotrauma specialists, Sophie is making great strides in developing the profile and potential of this area of work even further.”
