“Excellent” private client team hailed by Chambers


The specialist wills, trusts and probate team at law firm Sintons has again been hailed for its legal excellence and outstanding service by legal guide Chambers.

The team, regularly recognised as a leading advisor to high net worth individuals across the North, is praised for its “excellent service” and strength across its offering as a department, including estate administration, succession planning and contentious estates.

The latest Chambers ranking comes only weeks after the team was named Private Client Team of the Year at the Northern Law Awards 2019, in recognition of its legal capability and service excellence.

Two of its lawyers – department head Paul Nickalls and senior associate Emma Saunders – are also hailed by Chambers as notable practitioners for their work and reputation in their specialist fields.

Emma, a leading advisor on contentious trust and probate mattes, is hailed as “excellent” and is noted as an ‘associate to watch’. One testimonial reports she is “very sensible, pragmatic, practical and a pleasure to work with”.

Paul, regularly hailed as one of the leading lawyers in the North of England, again is singled out for his work, with his excellent client service and “professional and knowledgeable” approach winning him another high ranking.

Chambers is an annual independent ranking of law firms and lawyers, assessing all aspects of their specialism and service, based on examples of work, testimonials and interviews with lawyers.

Mark Quigley, managing partner of Sintons, said: “Our wills, trusts and probate team is regularly and rightly recognised as one of the leading names in the North of England in this field, and we are very pleased this has been highlighted yet again by Chambers. Emma and Paul also secure well-deserved recognition of their work, again confirming them as two of the key names in this very specialist area.

“Our work in the most complex of high net worth matters truly sets us apart and our legal excellence, combined with an outstanding client service, is why we are regarded in the highest of terms. We have a superb team and I am confident our reputation and status in the private client domain will only continue to grow.”
