Growth planned for Sintons’ matrimonial team 

October 6, 2017

The specialist matrimonial team at Sintons is continuing its expansion, which will form part of ambitious growth plans across the whole of the Newcastle-based law firm

The matrimonial team at Sintons’ law firm – frequently cited as one of the best of its kind in the North of England – works across the UK and is known for handling the separations and divorces of wealthy professionals, with clients including a number of high-profile public figures.

Led by renowned divorce lawyer Steve Freeman, Sintons’ matrimonial team is now seven-strong, and has plans to grow further to help keep pace with its expanding caseload.

Newcastle-based Sintons is targeting growth across the firm over the next five years to achieve a £20 million turnover by 2021. The matrimonial team is playing a key role in this progress.

Steve Freeman, partner and head of the Personal and Family team at Sintons, says: “Over the course of many years, our matrimonial team has built a well-deserved reputation as being among the best in the business. Our ethos is simple – we want the best outcome for our clients, and we know how to help them get it.

“As a large full-service firm with specialisms in a range of additional issues that may arise during separation (property, corporate, wills), we can offer a comprehensive service that other firms simply cannot.

Steve adds: “We have grown significantly in terms of our case load, the majority of which comes from word-of-mouth recommendation, and we are expanding to help accommodate that. We have a highly capable team of matrimonial specialists, and are keen to add to that as we continue to develop the department even further.”

Mark Quigley, managing partner at Sintons, says: “Our matrimonial work is one of a number of areas of the business where we attract work from across the UK. Being based in the North East is certainly no barrier, and proves clients are willing to instruct the very best advisors, wherever they happen to be based.

He continues: “Our vision as a firm is to set the standard for legal excellence, and in doing so, to become the law firm of choice for individuals, businesses and organisations, regionally and nationally. Our matrimonial team is a prime example of that ethos being put into practice, and with great success.”
