Legal 500 recognises Taylor&Emmet's newest team

In its first year of practice, the contentious probate team at Sheffield’s Taylor&Emmet LLP has secured a place in The Legal 500’s top 10 Yorkshire firms in this discipline.

The specialist solicitors are described as “exceptional” by this year’s guide to the UK legal sector, with department head, Alex Watkinson, hailed as being “technically very good.”

Taylor&Emmet is recommended in 11 areas of personal and business legal services, with the firm’s family team making the top three in its category. The experts are praised for being an “always polite and very professional” group, which includes the “thorough” Lucy Rodgers.

Personal injury specialist, John Green, marketing coordinator, Jenni Arundale and conveyancing legal secretary, Elsa Russell, are joining forces to support Taylor&Emmet’s annual charity.

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.

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.
