Employment team praised for “excellent” client service and legal advice


The employment team at Sintons has won praise from Chambers 2020 for its legal expertise, wide-ranging client base and its commitment to offering service excellence.

The team, named as one of the leaders in its field in the North East, is praised for its ability to advise clients in a range of sectors, with colleges, universities and hospital trusts being key clients alongside those from the charity, construction, energy and leisure sectors.

Chambers – an independent assessment of the legal world based on examples of work, interviews and client feedback – cites one client testimonial which says they were “particularly impressed with the way they seek to understand the underlying ethos of the business first, thereby providing advice and support tailored to meet the needs and demands of the business”.

Another says the team is “committed to providing excellent client service”.

Keith Land, head of employment and widely recognised as one of the leading employment advisors in the region, is again recognised for his work with a high ranking. He wins praised for his “wealth of technical knowledge….his expertise can help navigate through difficult legalities”.

Associate Ailsa Hobson is also named as a notable practitioner in this area.

The high rankings from Chambers 2020 echo the recent findings of Legal 500, which similarly praised Sintons’ commitment to offering an outstanding service, coupled with the highest standards of advice.

Mark Quigley, managing partner of Sintons, said: “Our employment team, for many years, has been recognised as a leading advisor in this specialist area and has built longstanding trusting relationships with clients in a host of sectors. The team is highly capable and indeed rapidly growing, and we are delighted our efforts in this area have again been independently recognised.

“Outstanding client service is something for which Sintons is known far and wide, and we take huge pride in our reputation for this. To have this area in particular highlighted by both Chambers 2020 and Legal 500 2019 is particularly pleasing, and is indicative of why we are the trusted advisor to so many clients across the North East and beyond.”
