Healthcare specialist Richard Hartis joins Sintons as partner

Newcastle-based law firm, Sintons, has expanded its team of healthcare specialists with the appointment of a new partner.

Richard Hartis brings with him 15 years of expertise in healthcare real estate, and specialises in property disposals and acquisitions, having worked with organisations including NHS Trusts, GPs and charities.

“Richard has acted for clients on multi-million pound projects, he’s advised on complex site developments and relocations, and he works closely with NHS bodies to help them correctly manage their estates,” said Christopher Welch, Sintons managing partner.

“Sintons provides top quality legal services to NHS Trusts and other care organisations, and having people like Richard as part of our team means our clients can be assured they’re working with people who really understand healthcare and who have the highest levels of expertise.”

The healthcare team at Sintons delivers advice to healthcare professionals, businesses and organisations, helping them to stay abreast of legal requirements and manage property transactions.

“Sintons is known for setting the standard when it comes to legal excellence and their team is consistently recognised as being amongst the very best in rankings like the national Legal 500,” said Richard. “To be joining a team like this, at a time of growth for the firm, is a brilliant opportunity.”

Sintons, which is headquartered in Newcastle city centre, was recently named as among the best law firms in the UK, with both its healthcare and real estate teams amongst those named in this year’s Legal 500. It has also been recognised as a leader in its field by the Chambers UK Legal Guide 2024.
