Rural team praised for legal and client service excellence


The specialist agriculture and estates team at Sintons has been hailed for its quality of legal excellence and client service by Legal 500 2019.

The growing team works with a range of clients across the North of England, with specialisms including the acquisition and disposal of large farming ventures, agricultural holdings and work in mines and minerals, as well as advising offshore trusts holding UK farms.

Legal 500 praised its “range of expertise” and the fact that client “expectations are usually exceeded”.

Tom Wills, a Fellow of the Agricultural Law Association and head of agriculture and estates at Sintons, is hailed as “extremely competent and confident” and for being “able to do what is required with minimal fuss”, with a strong track record of acting in complex matters.

Partner Paul Liddle, a long-established name in this area, is also singled out for his experience and expertise in acting for developers and landowners in the energy, waste and renewables sector.

Mark Quigley, managing partner of Sintons, said: “Sintons have, for many years and often several generations, been the trusted advisor to rural families and businesses and this is something we are extremely proud of. To win recognition from Legal 500 2019 for our client service, alongside our levels of expertise, is enormously pleasing and is rightful recognition of what Tom and his team are delivering. Our agriculture and estates team is growing strongly and is regularly involved in sizeable and highly complex transactions throughout the North of England, and we are delighted with this latest independent recognition of our capabilities.”
