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.”

Staff from Sheffield solicitors, Taylor&Emmet LLP, have leant a paw to annual charity, Support Dogs, at this year’s Crufts.

The firm’s marketing team volunteered on the first day of the internationally renowned Kennel Club event to help raise awareness of Support Dogs’ work across the UK.

Taylor&Emmet’s Claire Fletcher and Jenni Arundale spent a day at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre manning the charity’s tombola, directing visitors wanting information to Support Dogs’ staff and bringing mascot, Murdoch, to life for fundraising photo opportunities.

Sheffield’s Taylor&Emmet LLP is welcoming a new wills and probate specialist to its Ecclesall Road team, to enhance the services it offers to residents in the west of the city.

Natalie Sheldon joins Taylor&Emmet to increase the firm’s capacity for probate work and meet growing demand for its services in the Banner Cross area. 

Expert solicitor, Natalie, worked previously at Lincolnshire firm, Sills and Betteridge, where she completed her legal training, qualifying in June last year. She will be undertaking a wide range of private client cases, from drawing up wills to the management of deceased estates.

Taylor&Emmet joins support dog's pack

Staff at Sheffield solicitors, Taylor&Emmet LLP, are going barking mad for this year’s annual charity.

The firm is pledging its backing during 2016 to Support Dogs, which provides, trains and supports specialist assistance dogs for those with autism, epilepsy and physical disability.

Taylor&Emmet will be organising a series of fundraising events throughout the year to raise funds and awareness of its chosen charity. The team kicked off with a dress down day in January and a raffle at its annual dinner, raising £257 to date.

Last year, Taylor&Emmet fundraised for Rain Rescue, donating £2,000 in December to help the animal shelter continue saving the lives of South Yorkshire’s abandoned dogs and cats. It has run its annual charity initiative for a number of years, supporting a wide range of causes, from local hospice, St Luke’s to the Alzheimer’s Society.
