Sintons’ Court of Protection team expands further


The fast-growing Court of Protection team at Sintons is further expanding its team as its national workload continues to increase.

Caitlin Edwards is the latest addition to the team. She takes up a role as a paralegal to support its work in supporting people who have often had accidents resulting in serious life changing injuries, as well as supporting their families. 

The team, recently hailed as “efficient, knowledgeable and extremely professional” by Legal 500, is an area of significant progress and potential for Sintons, with its fast-developing reputation seeing it appointed in cases throughout the UK.

Caitlin, a law graduate from Durham University, said: “This is a fantastic role for me in a team which is known far and wide for its work.

“As a law graduate, a career in law has always appealed, and my role in Court of Protection work will also bring in my experience of supporting people who have sustained life-changing injury through my previous work with brain injury charity Headway.

“I’m really excited to become part of the Court of Protection team and to play my role in the next phase of its growth and development.”

Paul Nickalls, head of the Wills, Trusts and Probate department – of which the Court of Protection team is part – said: “Our Court of Protection team has worked very hard over the recent past to build on over 120 years of private client expertise and really make gains in this very niche area of work. As a result, we are increasingly being instructed nationally on the strength of our reputation and the consistent quality of our legal and client service.

“We are delighted to welcome Caitlin at this very exciting time for the department. The whole team are looking forward to working with her as we continue to grow our presence and capability even further, enabling us to support even more individuals and families across the UK.”
