Highly-rated specialist neuro lawyer joins Sintons
August 2, 2018
The specialist neurotrauma team at law firm Sintons has been strengthened further with a key new appointment.
Kate Nickin moves to Sintons after ten years at Irwin Mitchell, where she has built a reputation for her work in neurotrauma and serious injury, alongside her commitment to fighting hard on her clients’ behalf.
Kate joins Newcastle-based Sintons as an Associate and becomes the latest addition to the firm’s growing neurotrauma team. The team has built a reputation as a powerhouse in the North of England, handling claims for people across the UK who have suffered life-changing injuries.
She is the latest significant new appointment for the team, which was significantly strengthened last year through the appointment of consultant John Davis, one of the UK’s leading neurological injury specialist lawyers and former regional managing partner of Irwin Mitchell Newcastle.
Kate was part of John’s team at Irwin Mitchell in Newcastle for eight years.
She said: “I have seen the fantastic work Sintons’ neurotrauma team have been doing and without question they are now one of the market leaders in the North East. They have grown and developed so much and this is an exciting opportunity for me to be part of it. I loved working alongside John previously and it is brilliant to be able to do so again.
“What drives me is the difference I can make to people’s lives at a time they need it most. When you see the difference between seriously injured people who unfortunately don’t have a claim, and those that do – and the very different access to rehabilitation and treatment they receive – it makes you want to fight on their behalf to secure the very best quality of life possible. It’s not necessarily about getting the biggest pot of money – it’s about securing a package tailored exactly to the client’s needs to improve their lives as much as possible, and that is what I am committed to achieving.”
John Davis said: “I have had the pleasure of working with Kate for many years and it is great news for Sintons that she has decided to join us. She is an excellent lawyer who is absolutely committed to her clients and to doing the best possible job for them, I have been continually impressed by how hard she fights to secure that. I’m very pleased to be working alongside Kate again and am confident her work will help to develop the Sintons’ neurotrauma team even further.”
