Corporate lawyer again named as rising star of North’s legal scene
Emma, a senior associate at Sintons, is a specialist in matters including mergers and acquisitions, buyouts, private equity investments, solvent and insolvent reorganisations and corporate finance, and is establishing herself as a key name in corporate work.
Again named as a Rising Star by Legal 500 2021 – in which she was also hailed for her “clear and concise…approach and extremely personable” nature – Emma has become the trusted advisor to a range of businesses, from owner-managed ventures to large corporates, and has been involved in many deals of national and international significance.
Among her recent highlights are the sale of TDX (Europe) Limited to Italian-based AMB, creating a market-leading in the European packaging industry; the sale of a majority interest in Co-wheels Car Club to create the Oply UK car sharing network; completing the acquisition of Karting North East, a venue which has gone on to secure national attention though hosting the British Kart Championships; and overseeing the investment in MODS by the JGC Corporation which will accelerate MODS standing in the industrial software market.
Emma is part of the corporate and commercial team at Sintons, which was named Corporate and Commercial Team of the Year at the Northern Law Awards 2019 and is known regionally and nationally for the vast expertise and experience it has in its team.
Karen Simms, head of the corporate and commercial team at Sintons, said: “Emma is a huge asset to our team and her considerable legal talent, alongside her ability to translate even the most complex matters into something fully understand for her clients, has helped build her reputation as an outstanding corporate advisor.
“Regularly, Emma is involved in deals of great significance regionally, nationally and internationally. She works closely with partners Matt Collen and Adrian Dye in our team, who are independently leading names in their fields, which combines to make a very strong proposition for our clients. At Sintons, we are proud to offer legal excellence and an outstanding client service, which we deliver consistently to every client and in every transaction.
“We are delighted that Emma has again been named as a Rising Star by Legal 500, which is worthy recognition of the first-rate achievements she continues to make.”
