Further endorsement of specialist team through new accreditation


A member of Sintons’ specialist elderly and vulnerable client team has secured an esteemed qualification in recognition of her capability in the area.

Melissa Gill has completed the Court of Protection Practice course, which is an endorsement of her ability to offer specialist advice to people with limited capacity.

She secured the qualification after completing a series of modules and practical assessments over a six month period. The distance learning course allowed Melissa to study while continuing to do her job as usual.

Melissa’s new qualification adds further endorsement to Sintons’ elderly and vulnerable client team, which works with people across the UK and is growing strongly through its increasing profile and national case load.

The team is part of Sintons’ highly esteemed wills, trusts and probate department – winner of Private Client Team of the Year at the Northern Law Awards 2019 – which similarly enjoys a national reputation for its work.

Melissa said: “I’m delighted to have secured this accreditation, which adds further to our capability as a team as well as helping me to develop my own expertise in this very specialist area. Our elderly and vulnerable client service is growing strongly and it’s fantastic to be part of it.”

Paul Nickalls, head of Sintons’ wills, trusts and probate department, added: “We are seeing strong growth in our elderly and vulnerable client team and its reputation is growing strongly. We are increasingly being appointed to act in matters across the UK, which is testament to the excellent legal and personal service we offer.

“We continually invest in the development of our team to ensure they are equipped with everything they need to offer the highest standards to our clients, and Melissa’s new accreditation is further evidence of this. Congratulations to her on securing this new qualification.”
