Two solicitors from the Bakewell branch of Taylor&Emmet LLP are entering the history books by becoming the first women to take office in Derbyshire’s ancient Barmote Courts.

Suzanne Porter and Juanita Haigh have been appointed deputy stewards of the Wirksworth and Chatsworth Barmote Courts respectively, which handle lead mining matters.

The Taylor&Emmet solicitors will be responsible for swearing in a 12-strong jury of mining experts on behalf of the Barmote steward and former colleague, Michael Cockerton. The courts are still part of the English legal system and each meets once a year to protect the area’s mineral fields and the interests of the lead mineral owners, known as Lords of the Field, principally the Duchy of Lancaster and the Duke of Devonshire.

Property experts from Sheffield solicitors, Taylor&Emmet LLP, are inviting fellow industry professionals to a timely review of tax affecting the sector.

As part of its T&E Property Focus series, the firm is holding a Property Tax Seminar on April 7 to provide an update on changes to the levies affecting commercial and residential buildings.

The free breakfast event is taking place at The Crucible’s Adelphi Room and will feature guest speaker, David Robinson from Shorts Accountants, who will discuss tax on commercial premises, buy-to-let residential property and new stamp duty rules.

James Parden, Taylor&Emmet’s property litigation specialist, is hosting the event. He said: “The forthcoming changes to stamp duty have been relatively well publicised, but not everyone is clear on the finer details. In addition, the property sector is far less prepared for the introduction of other new tax laws that have received little media attention. We aim to inform and entertain colleagues from across the sector, bringing them up to speed on current legislation, whilst providing an opportunity to meet new contacts and share ideas.”
