Employment team hailed for expertise by Legal 500 2022


The employment team at Sintons has again been confirmed as a regional leader by Legal 500 2022, with its breadth of expertise and significant client base hailed as being key in its stand-out offering.

The department wins praise for its capability in a host of areas, particularly reorganisations, strategic advice, TUPE and discrimination claims, and is strong in both public and private sector work.

Legal 500 also highlights its expanding client base, which has particular strength in healthcare, education, charities, renewables and construction.

Practice head Keith Land is again named as a leading individual in the North of England in recognition of his deep expertise in employment law and outstanding client service, which one client told Legal 500 was “quite frankly, the reason I am able to sleep every night. He is the epitome of kindness, professionalism and intellect within his field”.

Senior Associate Ailsa Hobson is again hailed as a rising star, with fellow Associates Fiona Campbell, Angela Carver and Catherine Hope all being named as key figures in the team.

Legal 500 quotes an array of client testimonials attesting the service Sintons delivers, with one saying the team provides an “invaluable employment service to my business”.

“With over 200 members of staff in a highly regulated industry, I could not achieve the results I do without their input. Sintons are able to look at each situation and plan accordingly,” added the client.

The independent recognition from Legal 500 2022 comes as the latest endorsement of Sintons’ employment team, after it won widespread praise for its support of businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. The team made a host of free resources available online to help business owners negotiate the fast-changing situation and gave much-needed clarity around matters including the Job Retention Scheme.

Christopher Welch, managing partner at Sintons, said: “We are delighted to again be confirmed as a leader in our field, with our employment team and head of department Keith rightly being highlighted for their outstanding levels of capability and client service.

“Our employment team is an invaluable support for businesses across the North East and wider UK, providing clear and direct advice to enable them to negotiate the most difficult of situations with confidence and clarity. This has never been more vital than during the past 18 months, when our clients have been able to gain much-needed certainty about how to proceed despite the unprecedented and fast-changing situation – something which we know was not only essential to the running of their business, but hugely appreciated at a very difficult time.”
