Corporate and commercial teams praised by Legal 500


The corporate and commercial teams at Sintons have won praise for their “tremendously helpful, efficient and effective” approach, as they were again confirmed as one of the leading names in their field in the North of England by Legal 500 2023.

Sintons has a strong reputation for its work with businesses, with relationships routinely spanning many years and often multiple generations of ownership, with its commitment to delivering legal excellence and first-rate client service at the heart of its continuing development.

Legal 500 again hails its capability, with its strength in corporate work spanning mergers and acquisitions (M&A), private equity, reorganisations and finance transactions.

Its “particular knowledge” within manufacturing, renewable, technology and leisure sectors is singled out for praise.

Sintons’ commercial team “excels” in matters including collaboration agreements, data sharing issues, licences and regulatory and compliance work.

The corporate and commercial team again has three of the leading individuals in the North – head of corporate Adrian Dye, head of commercial Karen Simms and managing partner Christopher Welch – with partners Matt Collen and Emma Pern also highlighted as key names.

IP specialist Pippa Aitken and data and compliance lawyer Louise Weatherhead are both named as rising stars, in recognition of their work in their respective fields.

Legal 500 quotes clients and contemporaries, who attest Sintons’ capability and service excellence.

The team is “approachable, pragmatic, happy to re-go over ground where complex scenarios needed understanding”, stated one.

Another said: “In all of our work with Sintons they have been tremendously helpful, efficient, and effective. Work is done in a timely manner, to a high standard, and within the time frame expected. I have no qualms in recommending them highly.”

Managing partner Christopher Welch said: “We are known far and wide for our specialism in our services to business, with our corporate and commercial teams delivering a first-rate comprehensive offering with a focus on the highest standards of client service. Over years, we invest the time in building trusting and longstanding relationships with our clients, with new instructions coming in continually from across the UK to underpin our further growth.

“We are very pleased that our commitment and capability has again been recognised by Legal 500, with our core values of legal and client service excellence clear in its assessment of our offering. To have so many key members of our team highlighted for their work is also something we are very proud of – our people are what makes Sintons the outstanding firm it is, and this is rightful recognition of their efforts.”
