Sintons hailed for strength throughout corporate and commercial department


The specialist corporate and commercial team at Sintons has again been hailed as one of the key advisors in the North of England, with Legal 500 2019 praising its capability in the full spectrum of matters.

The team was hailed for its strength in key areas including mergers and acquisitions, buyouts, private equity, solvent and insolvent reorganisations and corporate finance, with Legal 500 pointing to its work in healthcare, life sciences and leisure as being of particular strength.

The department – winner of best corporate and commercial team at the Northern Law Awards 2019 – also wins praise for its capability in the niche areas of data protection and cybersecurity.

Legal 500 – a wholly independent assessment of law firms and lawyers based on examples of work, interviews and client and peer testimonials – hails the team for being “friendly and very approachable” and “very knowledgeable and quick to respond to queries”.

Karen Simms, head of corporate and commercial, is again named as a leading individual by Legal 500 and is highlighted for her “significant experience” in the complex areas of energy and waste management. She is also noted for her ability to “always remain calm during pressured situations”.

Senior associate Emma Pern is again hailed as a rising star, noted for her work in “complex transactions”.

Other recommended lawyers in this area include partners Christopher Welch, Matt Collen, Adrian Dye and senior associate Chloe Dinsdale.

Mark Quigley, managing partner of Sintons, said: “Our corporate and commercial team is widely regarded as one of the leaders in the North of England, with a client base that extends across the UK, and to have further endorsement of our work from Legal 500 2019 is very pleasing. The fact we are highlighted for excellence in so many areas of corporate and commercial work is testament to our strength and capability in this area, and to have a number of our key people recommended is further endorsement of our presence in this field.

“Our corporate and commercial department plays a central role in the delivery of our Strategy for Growth, and great strides have been made in the continuing development of this key area of the business, alongside the addition of a number of excellent new lawyers to the team. These latest strong rankings from Legal 500 add to our recent success at the Northern Law Awards in showing that Sintons is a strong and growing presence in this field and a highly-rated trusted advisor to so many clients regionally and nationally.”
