Legal 500 praises Sintons for agriculture and estates work
The team has grown significantly in the past few years, building on over 120 years of advising farming and rurally-based families, and is now a central player in estate and agricultural tenancy work.
Legal 500 points to its expertise in such areas, highlighting its work in acquisition and disposal of large farming ventures, agricultural holdings and significant development projects, as well as assisting with the registration of portfolios of mines and minerals.
It has also been instructed by a number of coal and wind farm sites in the North East in an endorsement of the team’s specialism in energy and renewables, Legal 500 notes.
Tom Wills, head of agriculture and estates, is praised for his focus on estate and tenancy work, and partner Paul Liddle is also highlighted for his years of experience in acting for developers and landowners in the energy, waste and renewables sectors.
“Our client base in the rural and farming communities of the North East and Cumbria dates back more than a century, and Sintons is a trusted name among countless families having supported them with both personal and business affairs for generations,” says Christopher Welch, managing partner of Sintons.
“Coupled with that, we have a strong and growing specialism in estates and renewables work, which sees us involved in many of the major land projects in our rural communities. To see this capability again recognised by Legal 500 is a rightful endorsement of the work we are doing, both with existing and new clients.”
