“Highly experienced” wills, trusts and probate team hailed for excellence
The department is a highly-regarded name across the North of England for its specialism in complex and cross-border matters, and wins further praise from Legal 500 for being a “team of highly experienced practitioners, polite and pleasant, and quick to respond to queries” which offers the highest quality of advice to high net worth clients in tax planning and asset protection matters.
The specialist team – which was named team of the year at the Northern Law Awards 2019 – is one of the fastest-growing areas of Sintons, with increasing levels of instructions coming from across the UK combined with ongoing strategic new appointments of legal talent.
Senior associate Paul Collingwood is named as a rising star as is praised for being “an expert in administering complex estates, as well as advising trustees”.
Legal 500 2019 – a wholly independent assessment of the legal sector based on examples of work, client and peer testimonials and interviews – further states that Paul Nickalls and Paul Collingwood are “excellent practitioners – they have significant experience but are also very personable”.
Mark Quigley, managing partner of Sintons, said: “Our wills, trusts and probate team rightly has a national reputation for its work in handling many complex disputes which other firms do not have the capability to deal with, and the levels of expertise we have here at Sintons are second to none. It is very pleasing to again have this recognised by Legal 500, who rightly acknowledge our legal excellence alongside our outstanding levels of client service.”
