Family team makes senior appointment


Law firm Sintons has appointed a highly experienced senior lawyer to its fast-growing specialist family team.

Jo Scott has worked in family law for over 30 years and is known for her specialism in the full spectrum of family work, including collaborative practice. Her cases often include those of significant complexity involving financial issues and issues involving children.

Senior associate Jo moves to Sintons at a time of strong progress for its family team, which acts nationally in high net worth and complex cases of divorce and separation, as well as in protective planning, and has recently been shortlisted in the Northern Law Awards 2023 in recognition of its legal and client service excellence.

“Having spent my whole career working in the North East, I know only too well the capability of Sintons’ family team and the esteem in which it is held. I am very pleased to become part of that,” says Jo.

Louise Masters, partner and head of family law at Sintons, says: “We are delighted to welcome Jo to our team at a time of strong growth for us as a department.

“Jo’s reputation for her work proceeds her and she wholly shares our commitment to delivering the legal and client service, which is at the heart of everything we do here at Sintons.

“Through our longstanding reputation and the tireless work of our team in continuing to build that, we are winning new instructions from across the country, with clients knowing we have the capability and experience to handle the most complex of cases.

“In a time of strong development and progress, it is fantastic we can add the expertise and excellence of Jo to our team – we look forward to working with her to build our department even further.”
