Sintons announces Private Client promotions


The strength and capability of SintonsPrivate Client Department has again been highlighted with the promotion of three of its key people.

Paul Collingwood, a specialist private client lawyer, has been promoted to partner, in recognition of his outstanding technical ability and commitment to providing the highest standard of service for his clients.

Since joining Sintons, Paul – ranked by both Legal 500 and Chambers as an emerging talent in his field – has played a key role in the strong development of the Wills, Trusts and Probate Team.

Also in the Wills, Trusts and Probate Team, Lauren Fraser has been promoted to associate.

In her four years with Sintons, Lauren has progressed strongly, becoming a key part of the specialist, award-winning team.

In addition to her ongoing achievements in her legal work at Sintons, Lauren was named the STEP Excellence Awards Winner 2020 in recognition of achieving the highest marks in the world for her administration of estates assessment.

In Sintons’ Residential Conveyancing Team, Suzanne Dixon has been named as a senior associate.

Suzanne plays a central role in the ongoing development of the law firm’s residential property offering, acting for buyers and purchasers across the country and handling the most complex of transactions with outstanding capability.

Paul Nickalls, head of the Private Client at Sintons, said the promotions help to reflect the excellence that runs throughout the department.

“We have a well-deserved reputation for our strength across all aspects of our private client offering – which comprises family law, alongside residential conveyancing and wills, trusts and probate – and the committed, talented team we continue to develop,” he says.

“Regularly, we are appointed in high value, highly complex matters by clients across the country, who come to us on the strength of the service we continue to deliver in each and every matter – and this is only made possible by the excellent people we have.

“We are very pleased to reward the efforts of Paul, Suzanne and Lauren with promotion. Each of them has developed a very well-earned reputation in their own right as specialists in their field, and we are delighted they are part of the continued development of Sintons’ Private Client Department.”
