Construction & engineering team wins praise from Legal 500 2023


The construction & engineering team at Sintons has been hailed by Legal 500 2023 for its capability in their specialism and for the wide range of matters it is able to handle with expertise.

The team acts for a wide range of clients – spanning employers, developers, contractors and sub-contractors – on the full range of construction and engineering contracts.

Its sector expertise spans care, education, data, residential development and food production facilities.

Legal 500 notes the increase the team has seen in its contentious workload, including damages claims and adjudication proceedings.

Sintons has a “very knowledgeable team with dedicated departments for differing areas of work, which I found communicate very well between each other and appear seamless in conversation with them,” Legal 500 says.

“(The team is) experienced and driven whilst also providing value for money”

Head of department Alex Rayner is hailed as having a “great understanding of the complex contractual and legal issues associated with construction and civil engineering…(he is) very good at providing advice in a clear, uncomplicated manner”.

Solicitor Jay Balmer is also named as being a key member of the team.

Christopher Welch, managing partner of Sintons, says: “Legal 500 rightly highlights the deep capability and wide-ranging specialisms we have in our construction & engineering team, an area of the business in which we continue to attract new instructions on the strength of our hard-earned reputation.

“Through our unrivalled combination of legal excellence and outstanding client service, we are building strong and longstanding relationships with clients, while welcoming new clients from the sector continually. Under Alex’s leadership, the team is making strong progress and I am very pleased Legal 500 has independently recognised the key and growing position we play in this market.”
