Sintons recognises legal excellence with three promotions

Sintons has promoted three of its lawyers to associate and senior associate level as it continues to grow across key areas of the business.

Danielle Dale, Kate Nicklin and Louisa Bestford have all moved up in the Newcastle-based law firm after excelling in real estate, personal injury and family law respectively.

Danielle is regularly involved in major regional real estate transactions for a diverse group of clients whereas Kate was recently hailed as a rising star by Legal 500 and an associate to watch by Chambers.

Kate is thought of as a leading name in neurotrauma, acting on behalf of clients with life-changing injuries.

Louisa is part of Sintons’ award-winning family team and is a specialist in advising on divorce and separation matters, particularly those involving high net-worth assets as well as handling pre and post-nuptial agreements.

The promotion round comes as part of Sintons’ Strategy For Growth, which aims to recruit and retain outstanding legal talent.

Mark Quigley, managing partner of Sintons, said: “Danielle, Kate and Louisa have all excelled in their specialist fields of work, continually delivering an outstanding legal service together with a first-rate personal service.

“We are very pleased to reward their dedication and commitment to achieving legal excellence with promotions.

“We are a firm which is committed to investing in the training and development of our people, to enable them to achieve their ambitions and progress in their careers.

“Our people will always be at the heart of everything Sintons does and the retention, alongside the recruitment, of outstanding lawyers will continue to be a central factor in our growth.”
