Sintons appoints new employment partner
Max Winthrop is a prominent employment lawyer with significant experience in advising clients nationally on a wide range of issues. As former chair and current member of the Law Society’s Employment Law Committee, he is also actively involved in major reforms and developments of employment law and the tribunal system, including giving evidence to Parliamentary committees.
As a lawyer, Max is highly rated for his heavyweight litigation work in tribunals and courts, with multi-faceted cases often involving a range of complex issues, including discrimination, whistleblowing and jurisdictional conflicts.
Clients range from PLCs and major businesses and organisations through to SMEs, senior employees and office holders.
Max – who moves from the partnership of another North East firm – joins Sintons at a time of significant development for the firm, with key appointments being made in a number of practice areas to strengthen its offering even further.
It also follows the release of Legal 500 2023, which confirmed Sintons as a leading name in employment law nationally, and praised the combination of legal and client service excellence it delivers. Head of practice Keith Land was again named as a leading lawyer in the North of England.
“Sintons’ reputation for its employment work in the marketplace is first-rate and the team is known for its expertise and commitment to clients,” says Max.
“I am very pleased to join and work alongside Keith and our colleagues to work towards building our offering even further. This is clearly a time of great progress for Sintons as a firm and this feels like an exciting time to move here.”
Keith Land, head of employment says: “Our employment team continues to build a national client base and I am very proud of the work our team has done so far in creating our first-rate reputation for legal and client service excellence. Yet again, that has also been endorsed independently by Legal 500.
“We are delighted to appoint Max, a lawyer of great calibre and significant experience, at what is a really important time in our development. We are growing strongly and the addition of Max to our team can only support that positive progress.”
