Contentious specialists top-rated in Chambers High Net Worth rankings


Law firm Sintons has again been confirmed as a leader in the North of England in handling contentious private wealth disputes through a top-tier ranking from Chambers and Partners.

The contentious probate, trusts and inheritance disputes team has been awarded a Band 1 ranking in the Chambers High Net Worth Legal Guide 2023, in recognition of its nationally-renowned specialism in this area of work.

The team are regularly hailed as top tier specialists by both Legal 500 and Chambers legal rankings, but this latest endorsement confirms its capability in high net worth matters.

Emma Saunders, head of the team, is again named as a top-tier lawyer and specialist in her field, in recognition of the highest standards of legal service and client support she delivers.

Associate Emilie Rowell also wins praise from the guide, and is named as an Associate to Watch.

The team is known nationally for its capability in this niche area of law, supporting clients through what are often complex and distressing matters to secure the best possible outcome for their unique circumstances.

Christopher Welch, managing partner of Sintons, says: “Our contentious probate, trusts and inheritance disputes team is consistently top-ranked for its deep expertise in this area of work. Few law firms can come close to the levels of capability we have in our team.

“We are delighted that, again, we are acknowledged in the highest possible terms with a Band 1 ranking, which is wholly deserved for the outstanding work our team does on behalf of clients during what can be hugely difficult circumstances for them.

“A true national leader in her field, Emma again wins recognition for her work in contentious matters, which sees her acting for clients in matters of the greatest complexity from throughout the country. We are also delighted to see recognition for Emelie, one of our past trainees who continues to excel.

“As our team continues to grow and develop its presence further nationally, we are very pleased with the latest independent recognition of the service we are providing, which is what we are utterly committed to delivering in each and every matter.”
