Chambers praises corporate for going ‘above and beyond’
The team is known for its capability in advising on range of matters, including M&A transactions, insolvency, restructuring and corporate finance, with a particularly strong client base in owner-managed businesses.
Sintons’ strength across a wide range of sectors is praised by Chambers, with its “strong focus” on healthcare highlighted in its offering.
The firm is hailed for its “fast response times with a personal service…it goes above and beyond, providing good support and a grasp of complex issues”.
The team’s four lead partners were also singled out for praise, in recognition of their capability in the field.
Managing partner Christopher Welch, consistently named as a go-to advisor for corporate work, is named as an eminent practitioner by Chambers.
“Chris quickly inspires confidence and trust, providing clear, pragmatic advice whilst being proactive. He is also very responsive and approachable…Chris’ work is pivotal to the service offered by Sintons,” quotes Chambers.
Head of corporate Adrian Dye – hailed as “friendly, approachable, commercial and pragmatic” – “strong” Matt Collen and ‘up and coming’ Emma Pern, who wins praise for the strong and trusting relationships she builds, are also highlighted for their capability.
The findings come only weeks after similarly strong ratings from Legal 500, which praised Sintons’ strength and capability across the board in corporate work.
“We are known far and wide for our specialism in our services to business, and our corporate team has become a trusted and longstanding advisor to many ventures across the North East and beyond. We pride ourselves on delivering the highest standards of legal and client service, which is fundamental in underpinning the existing client relationships we have and the new ones we continue to develop,” says Christopher Welch.
“We are very pleased this has been recognised by Chambers and Partners 2023, which rightly highlights our commitment to going above and beyond in our delivering of service excellence. Coming so soon after Legal 500 2023, which reported similar findings, this gives us yet more independent endorsement of the fact we are meeting the highest standards.”
