Legal and client service excellence praised in corporate team
Chambers 2022 points to the firm’s strength in M&A transactions, alongside insolvency, restructuring and corporate finance matters, as making it stand out in the marketplace, alongside its “notable experience” in a host of industries.
The independent legal publication also highlights the level of service it delivers to clients, the majority of whom are SMEs, private companies and owner-managed businesses. One is quoted as saying the team is “insightful, intelligent, professional, and an extension of my business. They feel like part of our everyday life and business.”
The team is known across the North of England for its capability, particularly in complex transactions, and Chambers quotes a notable example as its role in advising the existing shareholders and directors of Climb Creative on the merger of Climb Creative, Precision Printing, ProCo Group, Prime Print Group and their respective subsidiaries, into one larger group under a new holding company, Halo Print.
Adrian, who primarily focuses on private equity fundraisings and exits, is hailed as having a “good depth of knowledge and provides good pragmatic and commercial advice”.
Matt, a specialist in M&A work for buyers and sellers and private equity investments, is quoted as giving advice that is “clear, direct, reliable and always positioned with real-world pragmatism – something which I very much value and which is a rare quality.”
Christopher, a leading name in corporate reorganisations and acquisitions, is said to be “excellent – very attentive to his clients’ needs, and his commercial approach is an added value….absolutely brilliant, level headed.”
The wide-ranging praise from Chambers comes only weeks after Legal 500 reported similar findings from Sintons’ corporate and commercial offering, with its combination of legal and client service excellence setting it apart from many competitors.
“We are very proud of the reputation we have built for our work in this area and the support we give to businesses and business owners regionally and nationally. Routinely, we are by the sides of our clients for years and build trusting relationships which can span several generations of business ownership,” says Christopher.
“We are very pleased that this deep commitment to our clients and the service we give to them has again been independently recognised by Chambers, only weeks after Legal 500 reported similar conclusions.
“We have a strong and capable team who are able to complete the most complex of transactions and it is excellent that our continuing development and progress, while remaining true to our core ethos, is being recognised in this way.”
