Rural team again hailed by Legal 500
Legal 500 highlighted Sintons’ broad client base in this area – which includes estates, landowners, farming enterprises, private banks and investors – and vast expertise in matters including the acquisition and disposal of farming ventures, agricultural holdings and development projects, as well as the registration of mines and minerals portfolios.
The team has grown over the past few years to become one of the leading specialist rural advisors in the North East, attracting work from across the region as well as Northumberland, North Yorkshire and Cumbria. Many of its rural clients, both families and businesses, are long-standing, with Sintons routinely being the chosen advisor across a number of generations.
Tom Wills, head of agriculture and estates at Sintons, was praised for his “ability to tackle complex deals” and for being “approachable and knowledgeable” in dealing with clients and peers.
Mark Quigley, managing partner at Sintons, said: “For many decades we have had a very strong offering at Sintons for rural clients, but in more recent years, our dedicated team has seen significant levels of growth and development to become a leading advisor highly respected by clients and peers alike.
“We are delighted this has been recognised by Legal 500 2018, which offers an independent analysis of the legal landscape, and that our hard work in this area is being acknowledged.”
