Taylor&Emmet rebrands Bakewell office

Sheffield solicitors, Taylor&Emmet LLP, will be changing the name of its Bakewell office – currently known as Cockertons – in the New Year.

From January 4, the Peak District branch will carry the Taylor&Emmet signage to complete its integration with the rest of the firm.

The merger of Bakewell stalwart, Cockertons, with Taylor&Emmet two years ago, has already increased the range of legal services available to the town’s residents and businesses. The firm is now introducing new branding to strengthen its identity in Derbyshire, creating clear links with other offices in Sheffield and Dronfield.

School leavers, Saskia Bex (17) and Sophie Clithero (19), became Taylor&Emmet’s first intake of apprentices in September 2013. They now join the personal injury and employment law teams respectively, having gained a Chartered Institute of Legal Executives certificate for legal secretaries, the equivalent of a National Vocational Qualification level three.
