“Expertise” of construction team hailed by Chambers 2021
The team was hailed for its work in both non-contentious and contentious construction matters, and for its capability in a host of matters including the design and negotiation of construction contracts, redevelopment work and adjudications.
Chambers cites the team as being “very knowledgeable, pragmatic, commercial, approachable and reliable”.
Alex Rayner, head of Construction & Engineering, also wins individual praise for his work, particularly in drafting construction contracts and documentation for disputes.
“He is great to work with as he offers practical solutions and really understands our business,” one testimonial said.
The ability of the team to advise clients – who include contractors, utility companies and care businesses – in an accessible manner was also praised.
Another client said the team “explain things to me in a fashion I can understand, they always give me options on the advice we had. They were very punctual, very accurate in the advice they were giving us and personable.”
Christopher Welch, managing partner at Sintons, said: “Our construction team has built a reputation regionally and beyond for its capability and in delivering clear and direct advice, supporting clients throughout their project from the earliest stage to the conclusion and becoming a trusted part of their own team. We are very pleased with this latest independent recognition of our work in construction, which is testament to the efforts and expertise of Alex and his team.”
