Leading family lawyer moves to Sintons


The specialist family team at law firm Sintons has continued its expansion with the appointment of a leading solicitor.

Elizabeth Gallagher has joined Sintons as a consultant, having moved from her previous role as head of family law at a Teesside-based firm.

She brings over 25 years of experience to Newcastle-based Sintons and during her career she has become known as a leading specialist in all aspects of family law, particularly in resolving complex financial issues arising from divorce or separation, arrangements concerning children and pre- and post-nuptial agreements.

Elizabeth is a collaborative lawyer and an active member of the North East Collaborative Lawyers Group. She is passionate about resolving family disputes at an early stage and without the emotional and financial cost of protracted court proceedings.

Elizabeth said: “It is a privilege to join the team at Sintons. From my early days in the legal profession I have always been aware of Sintons’ long-established reputation. I have been hugely impressed by their vision for the future. They have adapted to a hugely changed legal profession whilst continuing to, first and foremost, promote the interests of their clients.

“At the same time, they have maintained a culture which promotes the welfare and development of all their employees. This makes the firm attractive to lawyers at all stages in their careers, as is shown by the recent and ongoing recruitment across the firm.”

Mark Quigley, managing partner of Sintons, said: “Over more than 25 years, Elizabeth has built a reputation in the North East as a leading specialist family lawyer and we are very pleased she has chosen to join us here at Sintons.

“We have a very high-calibre family team acting for clients across the whole UK, and we have seen significant growth within the department over the past few months in response to demand for our outstanding legal advice and unrivalled personal service. We are confident that Elizabeth’s arrival will help develop our strength and reputation even further.”
