Insurance litigation team and its ‘exceptional’ department head confirmed as national leaders by Chambers 2019
The team, which acts for a number of major UK insurers and has a reputation for its ability to handle the highest value and most complex claims, has again won a rating as one of the UK’s leading specialists in this area.
Jamie McCabe, head of insurance litigation, is ranked as a band one lawyer nationally, which confirms his position as one of the go-to lawyers in this field in the UK. Hailed as “highly respected”, Chambers hails him as being “exceptional” with “outstanding technical knowledge and tactical awareness”.
The findings of Chambers 2019 come only shortly after similar ratings from Legal 500 2018, which named Newcastle-based Sintons’ insurance litigation department as a top-tier provider, with Jamie McCabe as a leading individual.
Mark Quigley, managing partner of Sintons, said: “Our insurance litigation team is rightly regarded as one of the very best of its kind in the UK, in recognition of its outstanding capability in this highly specialist area. Jamie McCabe is regularly, and quite correctly, hailed as being one of the leading insurance litigation lawyers in the UK, and we are delighted with this latest recognition for him and his team.
“Both Chambers and Legal 500 once again point to the outstanding quality and capability of our insurance litigation offering, which confirms our place as being a regional and national leader in this area.”
