Sheffield’s Taylor&Emmet LLP is appointing two highly regarded young solicitors to strengthen the services it offers to local businesses. Nicola Keith and Tom Haywood have joined the firm’s commercial property and corporate law teams respectively. Having worked previously at Larken and Co. in Newark for two years, Nicola has relocated to Sheffield to join Taylor&Emmet. She will be working on a wide range of commercial property matters and assisting head of department, Richard Kay, on large or complex cases. Tom, previously of Bell and Buxton in Sheffield, qualified as a solicitor in March. He will be focusing on corporate matters, including business sales and purchases and shareholder and partnership agreements, as well as undertaking some insolvency work. Rob Moore, head of Taylor&Emmet’s business legal services team, said: “Nicola and Tom both have the technical ability, ambition and positive attitude to be real attributes to our corporate clients. The wide range of work we handle will enable them to broaden their practical experience and I have no doubt they will continue to develop skills that will enhance our expanding department.” To meet rising demand for its business services, Taylor&Emmet has also welcomed chartered legal executive, Anna Pettinger and paralegal, Natasha Goulbourne, to its commercial litigation and commercial property teams.
