Real Estate department at Sintons continues to grow with new addition
Julie Perkins joins Sintons with a wealth of experience in the real estate sector, with particular specialism in ecclesiastical work, adding further to Sintons’ renowned expertise in this niche area of law.
The firm’s faith-based institutions team acts for a wide range of high-profile clients on a national basis, including the Managing Trustees of the Methodist Church and Church Commissioners for England, making it a leading specialist advisor in the field.
In addition to her ecclesiastical specialism, Julie’s wide-ranging experience has seen her act for other major landlords and land owners including international estate holders, property investment funds, and sizeable corporate and private real estate property owners.
During her career, Julie – who relocates from a Yorkshire-based law firm to join Sintons – has dealt with matters of great complexity, including overseeing sales of major assets and the purchase of sites for extensive and high-value development.
She joins Sintons at a time of strong progress for the firm and its award-winning real estate team, which has a national reputation for its work and counts some of the most esteemed and recognisable names in UK commercial property among its clients.
The team, which is regularly instructed in matters nationally, continues to build its presence and profile in other specialist sectors of real estate work in addition to its faith-based work, including healthcare, leisure and construction.
“Sintons has a wealth of experience and capability across the entire real estate spectrum, with the size and range of specialisms within the team giving huge potential for us to build even further on what we have here,” says Julie.
“I am very pleased to join Sintons and the partnership, and look forward to working with colleagues to develop and grow the real estate team and wider business even further.”
Mark Dobbin, head of real estate, said: “Julie is a highly experienced real estate lawyer with an excellent reputation for her work. The fact she is able to add further expertise to our nationally-renowned work with faith-based institutions is a great asset in what is a highly niche area of legal work.
“At Sintons, we are held in the highest regard for the expertise and experience we have within our team, which enables us to handle a number of major deals consecutively and complete within the tightest of timescales, while delivering a level of client service that is second to none.
“Through ongoing instructions from major clients nationally, we continue to build our department and its presence in the UK real estate sector, and we look forward to working with Julie and the rest of our team to developing this even further.”
