IP specialist hailed as go-to advisor


A specialist IP lawyer at Sintons has been confirmed as one of the leaders in her field in the North of England.

Pippa Aitken is a highly-regarded specialist in intellectual property, advising businesses across the UK on their rights and how to protect and commercially exploit them.

In recognition of her work, senior associate Pippa has been named as an Associate to Watch by Chambers 2021, which confirms her as a leading lawyer in her field while also recognising her future potential.

“Pippa is always really responsive and takes the time to understand what we need. She is all-round brilliant,” cites one testimonial in the independent Chambers publication.

Pippa has, for many years, been known as a leading IP advisor and has led the development of Sintons’ specialist IP practice. The firm has become known as a key name in this area of law, supporting major public and private sector clients with matters including trademarks, licensing agreements, commercial contracts and Software as a Service (SaaS) agreements.

Sintons’ IP team forms part of its corporate and commercial department, which won Team of the Year at the Northern Law Awards 2019.

Karen Simms, head of corporate and commercial at Sintons, says: “For many years, Pippa has been widely regarded as a go-to IP advisor, and has built longstanding relationships with clients across the country during that time. To see her expertise and potential in this field independently recognised by Chambers is fantastic.

“Our IP specialism is well known, and Pippa’s outstanding work has helped develop our reputation as a leading name in this area. IP is a hugely important factor for businesses and protection of such valuable assets is vital, particularly in such a challenging economic climate, and we are pleased to be helping so many clients to do so.”
