Specialist Construction lawyer joins Sintons


The ongoing recruitment of senior lawyers at law firm Sintons has continued with the addition of a specialist construction lawyer who has relocated from London to take up his new role.

Matthew Pexton moves from renowned London law firm Wedlake Bell to join Sintons, and has become an Associate in the firm’s Construction & Engineering team.

He has significant experience in both contentious and non-contentious work, and has acted in major transactions in sectors including leisure, healthcare and care.

A highly-esteemed construction specialist and a founder member of TeCSA 10s – a sub-division of the Technology and Construction Solicitors Association for next generation construction lawyers – Matthew joins Newcastle-based Sintons at a time of strong growth for both the Construction & Engineering team and the wider firm.

The specialist Construction & Engineering team, led by Partner Alex Rayner, acts for many of the biggest names in North East business, and works nationally and internationally for a number of major clients.

Matthew said: “I am delighted to move to Sintons and to the North East, which is a fantastic region in which to live and work. The Construction & Engineering department has an excellent reputation with an enviable client base and is regularly instructed on major projects. This is a very exciting new challenge for me and I look forward to working with Alex and the team as we continue to grow the department further.”

Mark Quigley, managing partner of Sintons, said: “As an ambitious and growing law firm, we see recruitment of excellent lawyers as being central to our ongoing success, and this is at the very heart of our Strategy for Growth. Matthew is the latest in a series of senior lawyers who share our vision of excellence and have relocated from elsewhere in the UK to build their careers further with us.

“We are delighted to welcome Matthew to Sintons and wish him the very best of luck in his new role within our Construction & Engineering team, which has developed so strongly in the recent past and is rightly regarded as one of the best of its kind in the region. We are confident that can only continue with the hard work and capability of Alex, Matthew and the team.”
