Top-ranked dispute resolution team hailed for deep capability


The fast-growing dispute resolution team at Sintons has continued its strong progress by securing a top ranking in Legal 500 2021, acknowledging its position as one of the leading specialists of its kind in the North of England. 

The team, which has acted in matters across the UK for many years, has built a reputation as a key name in dispute resolution on a national basis. Regularly, it is appointed to act in the most complex of cases, and is known for its capability in resolving such matters.

Its strength has now been acknowledged with a band one ranking in Legal 500 2021. The independent guide hails the team’s “particular strength” in commercial contracts and warranty claims, professional negligence and financial services, and praises its capability in advising healthcare sector clients.

Practice head Angus Ashman and partner Graeme Ritzema, both long-standing key names in dispute resolution work, are both recommended by Legal 500 in recognition of their capability in handling the most complex matters.

Sintons is also hailed for its work in the specialist field of property litigation, with associate Aimee Hubbard being named as a rising star for her work in this area.

The dispute resolution team has seen strong growth in recent times, with work coming from across the UK and new clients coming to Sintons continually. The team has recently added another partner, Hilary Waters, to help build further on its progress.

Christopher Welch, managing partner at Sintons, said: “Our dispute resolution team has seen strong levels of growth, based on the outstanding reputation of the department and the work of those working within it to achieve that.

“We have supported many businesses and individuals in securing resolution to their matters, particularly over the past few months amidst the extreme turbulence we have seen in business and the wider economy, and our combination of legal excellence and an outstanding client service run throughout everything we do.

“The award of a band one ranking is due recognition of the capability and expertise we have here in our dispute resolution team, and of the unrivalled service we provide to each and every client.”
