‘Personal touch’ helps employment team to excel, says Legal 500
The team works with both public and private sector clients across the North of England, supporting with both contentious and non-contentious matters.
In Legal 500 2023, it is again named as a key employment advisor in the North, with its wide-ranging sector expertise – which includes healthcare, charities and construction – highlighted as being a major strength.
The team are found to “be incredibly approachable, friendly and professional. They provide the personal touch which makes all the difference,” quotes Legal 500.
Head of department Keith Land is again named as one of the leading individuals in the North, and wins praise for his “responsive and attentive” approach.
One testimonial quoted by Legal 500 states: “Over the years I have approached Keith for all kinds of employment advice and issues. As soon as I involve Keith in an issue, he puts me at ease and helps to reduce the stress of a situation.
“I have complete confidence in him and know that he will provide pragmatic, easy to understand advice.”
Senior associate Ailsa Hobson, praised for the broad range of areas in which she advises, is again named as a rising star. Associates Angela Carver and Catherine Hope are also named as key figures in the team.
Christopher Welch, managing partner of Sintons, says: “Our employment capability is well known, with businesses and organisations across the North appointing Sintons as their trusted advisor to handle their employment matters. Many of our clients have been with us for years, which is testament in itself to our consistent delivery of the highest standards of legal and client service.
“Legal 500 2023 is yet more independent endorsement of that, and the outstanding service we offer to clients. Our growing team has significant capability and a deep committed to supporting our clients through whatever challenges they may face – that has never been more evident than during the COVID-19 pandemic, when our employment team dedicated themselves to supporting new and existing clients to negotiate the ever-changing landscape, helping to give clarity for businesses at a time that was hard to find.
“As a firm which recognises its success is down to its people, we are very pleased to see several key individuals from our employment team given recognition. It is through their efforts that Sintons has the outstanding reputation it does, and this acknowledgement by Legal 500 is very well deserved.”
