Employment team attracts further praise with Chambers 2018 ratings
The team was praised for its “breadth of knowledge” which enables them to “offer a wide range of services that match the varied needs of business”. Its breadth of work – which sees them act for major public sector clients, NHS Trusts, charities, businesses and a host of other organisations – was also highlighted as a significant factor.
Keith Land, head of employment, was again rated as a Band One lawyer – one of the very best practitioners in the region – for his work.
Chambers found he has a “deep understanding of employment law and a pragmatic approach to the various issues….he is a pleasure to deal with”, and further praised his expertise in reorganisations, TUPE and discrimination claims, adding that he was a highly effective operator in both the public and private sectors.
The praise for the team follows the recent findings of Legal 500 2017, which also hailed the “exceptional” work of the employment department.
Mark Quigley, managing partner of Sintons, said: “Our employment team is acknowledged as being one of the best in the region, so we are very pleased that again its work is being recognised in the highest terms.
“Our vision as a firm is to set the standard for legal excellence, and in doing so, to become the law firm of choice for individuals, businesses and individuals regionally and nationally. We are pleased that the latest Chambers rankings, coming so soon after our exemplary Legal 500 ratings, offer further proof that we are making great strides towards achieving that.”
