‘Knowledgeable and respected’ family team hailed by Legal 500 2023


The family team at Sintons has been hailed as a leading specialist in its field by Legal 500 2023, with expertise in complex and high value matters and a focus on client service.

The “knowledgeable and respected” team is known nationally for its work in complex divorce and separation matters, with its client base comprising high net worth and high profile individuals who appoint Sintons on the strength of its track record and reputation in the marketplace.

Confirming its standing, Legal 500 points to Sintons’ specialism across the board, from high value financial remedy matters to pre-nuptial agreements and complex multi-jurisdictional child arrangements.

“The family team has a great breadth of experience in terms of levels of qualification and both dispute resolution and court work…it has provided extremely sound advice,” quotes Legal 500.

It also names “highly skilled” head of department Louise Masters as a next generation partner, in recognition of her deep specialism as a collaborative lawyer, litigator and advocate.

Elizabeth Gallagher – whose expertise is “second to none” – and Sophie Dodds are also named as key members in Sintons’ growing family team, which continues to bring in new specialists to deliver its market-leading combination of legal and client service excellence.

“Our family team is known on a national basis for its expertise in high value, highly complex matters, and our instructions come from throughout the country. Our reputation in the marketplace is well deserved and hard earned and our standing continues to grow strongly,” says Christopher Welch, managing partner of Sintons.

“Legal 500 again acknowledges our deep capability in family law, while also highlighting our absolute focus on client service. Family cases can often be distressing and long-running, but our team are committed to being by the sides of their clients throughout the process.

“As a firm which prides itself on the quality of its team, we are very pleased to see a number of key individuals singled out for praise. The reputation we have for our capability in family law comes from the efforts of those working within the team, and this is a rightful endorsement of their work.”
