Family team hailed for specialism in high value matters
The department – named as family team of the year at the Northern Law Awards 2019 – won further independent endorsement of its capability in the newly-released Legal 500, with its work with high net worth individuals hailed as being outstanding.
Its work in “unusual” cases, including those related to the Hague Convention and international financial matters, is also singled out.
Steve Freeman, head of family law, is highlighted for his work in high net worth financial remedy matters, and recent appointments Elizabeth Gallagher and Louisa Bestford are also hailed as being key additions to the growing team.
Sintons’ family team routinely acts across the UK in complex and high value matters and has a client base comprising public figures, sports professionals and other high net worth individuals.
Mark Quigley, managing partner of Sintons, said: “Our family team is regularly appointed in matters across the country, such is the reputation and quality of the work we do here, and this is a department which continues to grow to accommodate the increasing levels of instructions we receive.
“These excellent rankings from Legal 500 2019, coming so soon after being named team of the year at the Northern Law Awards, provide further independent recognition of the work we are doing and the ambition we are displaying as we continue to make our presence felt on a national scale. Steve and the team are doing a fantastic job of delivering an excellent legal service, combined with first-rate client care, and I am delighted they continue to be recognised for their work.”
