‘Standout’ employment team hailed for capability


The “standout” employment team at Sintons has won praise from Chambers and Partners 2023 for its wide-ranging expertise and high standards of client service.

The team advises clients in both the public and private sector and is highlighted for its capability in the full range of employment work including executive terminations, mass redundancies and restructuring issues, as well as discrimination claims, disciplinary proceedings and advice on employment contracts.

Chambers also hails the broad range of sectors in which it operates, with clients in education and healthcare, including colleges, universities and hospital trusts, as well as from the construction, energy and leisure sectors.

“There is no matter that Sintons can’t handle to an extremely high level…support and advice was technically excellent and delivered in a compassionate and helpful way,” quotes Chambers.

The firm is also praised for its programme of training and seminars, which regularly engage hundreds of business and HR professionals from across the region.

Two of its key lawyers – head of employment Keith Land and senior associate Ailsa Hobson – are also singled out for praise.

Keith, regularly named as one of the leading employment lawyers in the North of England, is praised for delivering an “exemplary service” to clients. Ailsa, named as an associate to watch, wins praise for her “knowledge of employment law and understanding of business needs”.

The findings of Chambers come only weeks after the publication of Legal 500 2023, which similarly reported that Sintons’ employment teams was a stand-out name in the North of England, with a deep commitment to delivering legal and client service excellence.

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. We pride ourselves on our hard-earned reputation for delivering outstanding legal and advice and client service.

“We are very pleased to see this recognised by Chambers and Partners, which recognises the commitment we have to consistently delivering the highest standards. Coming so soon after the publication of Legal 500 2023, which similarly highlighted our efforts, it is very pleasing to have further independent recognition of the work we are doing and outstanding job our employment team are doing for their clients.”
