A well-known probate lawyer has joined law firm Sintons.
Ingrid Forshaw, who has more than 10 years’ experience in handling probate, wills and trusts, has moved to Newcastle-based Sintons from another law firm in the city.
The solicitor, who is STEP qualified, has established a strong reputation during her career for her work in her specialism, and is a key addition to the Personal and Family department at Sintons.
Forshaw is the latest in a series of new appointments at Sintons, which employs more than 200 people and has taken on 23 new members of staff already during 2014.
She said: “Sintons has a very strong reputation for the quality of its work and its personal service, and is highly regarded throughout the North East and beyond.
“Its Personal and Family department has an unrivalled reputation, and I can genuinely say I have always wanted to work here. I am really pleased to join the team, and am looking forward to helping to continue to grow and develop this department and the wider firm.”
Alan Dawson, chairman of Sintons, added: “Ingrid is a highly capable and experienced solicitor who is a great addition to our very strong Personal and Family department.
“We have a huge amount of capability and expertise here at Sintons and have made several key additions so far this year, Ingrid being the latest. We are very pleased she has decided to join us.”
