Highly-rated family lawyer joins Sintons


Louisa Bestford moves to Newcastle-based Sintons from a senior position with a Teesside law firm. She is a specialist in divorce, separation, financial settlements and cohabitation, and regularly acts in high value complex cases.

As a member of Resolution, she encourages the use of mediation and arbitration as a means to achieve the most amicable outcome.

Louisa’s appointment strengthens Sintons’ family team further, and comes only shortly after the addition of well-known matrimonial specialist Elizabeth Gallagher as a consultant. Already one of the leading names in family law in the North of England, Sintons’ team continues to grow with strategic appointments to help build its reputation and capability further still.

Steve Freeman, partner and head of the firms’ Personal and Family department said: “We are rightly regarded as one of the best around in the field of family law and have a long history of acting in the most complex of cases, fighting hard on our clients’ behalf to achieve the best outcome for them. We have a strong and growing team which is exceptionally busy.

“We are very pleased to welcome Louisa. With her experience and excellent legal capability, she is a great addition to Sintons. We will continually look at new opportunities to grow further and are confident Louisa, working with the rest of the team, will help us achieve our ambitions.”
