‘Expertise’ in Construction & Engineering wins praise
The Construction & Engineering team at Sintons has won praise for its “expertise” in both contentious and non-contentious matters from Chambers and Partners 2023, as well as its ability to handle the most complex cases.
Again confirming it as a key name in the region, Chambers points to its support of clients with the design and negotiation of construction contracts, development work and adjudications.
Its client base is wide ranging, says Chambers, and includes contractors, utility companies and care homes.
Sintons is highlighted for its capability in highly complex matters, with Chambers stating the firm has an “impressive ability to comprehend the significance of technical matters….their ability to progress complex matters is excellent”.
Head of practice Alex Rayner is also singled out for his “hands on and forward thinking” approach, which has seen him become the advisor of choice to businesses across the North East and increasingly nationally.
“Without a doubt, he is the most pragmatic, commercially aware and legally knowledgeable construction lawyer we have used,” quotes Chambers.
The praise from Chambers comes only weeks after the release of Legal 500 2023, which also reported Sintons to be a leading name in the marketplace with deep expertise across the board.
Christopher Welch, managing partner of Sintons, says: “Our work and presence in the construction sector is growing strongly, with Chambers rightly highlighting our expertise in the field and ability to handle matters of the greatest complexity. We are the trusted advisor to many clients across the North, with our national reach increasing all the time.
“For Chambers to deliver such positive findings only weeks after Legal 500 reported similar positive ratings is great news, and further independent endorsement of the legal and client service excellence we are delivering.”
