Wide-ranging specialism of agriculture and estates team praised by Legal 500


The agriculture and estates team at Sintons has again been confirmed as a leading advisor in the North of England in its specialist field by Legal 500 2021.

The team, which handles matters throughout the North East, North Yorkshire and Cumbria, was praised for its specialism in a wide range of niche areas.

Its wide variety of clients – ranging from farmers, rural businesses, estates, landowners and investors – and strong professional links were also hailed by Legal 500.

Tom Wills, head of agriculture and estates, and partner Paul Liddle – a specialist in energy, waste and renewables – were both named as key names in the sector.

Sintons is regularly instructed in matters of great significance and complexity, with recent matters including the gift of Carrawburgh Roman Fort on Hadrian’s Wall to the nation, in a transaction which attracted national attention.

Christopher Welch, managing partner of Sintons, said: “For many years, often spanning generations, Sintons has been known as a high-regarded and trusted name in the rural and agricultural community for the specialist advice we are able to give to families and businesses. We have a deep knowledge and understanding of our region’s rural communities and are continually appointed to act on their behalf through our absolute commitment to delivering the highest standards of legal advice and personal service.

“To again win recognition for this from Legal 500 is very pleasing and is a rightful endorsement of the work of Tom and his team in growing Sintons’ presence in this very specialist sector even further.”
