‘Standout’ employment team hailed by Chambers 2021
The “standout” employment team at Sintons, which has won recent praise for its support of businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic, has now secured further independent endorsement from Chambers and Partners UK Guide 2021 for its “capability, knowledge and experience”.
The team is hailed for its capability across a broad range of sectors, taking in education, healthcare, charity, construction, energy and leisure, and for its strength in advising on matters including executive terminations, mass redundancies and restructuring.
Chambers has now named it as one of the leading employment advisors in the region, building on praise from the recently-released Legal 500 2021, which similarly hailed Sintons for the clear and direct manner in which it advises clients on even the most complex of issues.
Sintons’ employment specialists have won widespread plaudits in recent months for its support of businesses during the pandemic, holding free webinars and Q&A sessions, in addition to creating a wealth of timely and relevant written content, to help give some clarity on matters like the Job Retention Scheme during the most uncertain of times.
Keith Land, head of employment, is again hailed as a leader in his field for his ability to advise on the full spectrum of employment law, with one client saying “his ability to analyse a situation, evaluate it and advise on it delivers additional value to our business”.
Ailsa Hobson is named as an Associate to Watch and is praised as being “very efficient” with capability in a wide range of matters.
Christopher Welch, managing partner of Sintons, said: “Our employment team is well-known and highly-respected for the highest standards of legal and client service it delivers, and has come to particular prominence over the past few months with its commitment to supporting the business community during the pandemic.
“To secure further independent confirmation of our expertise in this field from Chambers is excellent, particularly so soon after the findings from Legal 500 2021, which echoed the endorsements of our capability and client commitment.”
