Taylor&Emmet expert speaks up for whiplash victims

A personal injury specialist from Sheffield’s Taylor&Emmet LLP is lobbying local MPs to highlight the impact proposed reforms to whiplash claims will have on their constituents.

Associate solicitor, John Green, has so far met with three Sheffield and North Derbyshire MPs to discuss the government’s plans to reduce legal support for road accident victims.

John’s first meeting was with independent representative for Sheffield Hallam, Jared O’Mara and he has subsequently sat down with Labour’s Sheffield Heeley MP, Louise Haigh and Conservative, Lee Rowley, who speaks for North East Derbyshire.

Taylor&Emmet poll reveals dismay at injury reforms

Taylor&Emmet LLP’s Twitter followers have shown resounding opposition to the government’s plans to reduce the legal support available for victims of road traffic accidents.

The Sheffield solicitors have run a series of online polls concerning the proposed Civil Liability Bill, which is attempting to remove whiplash claims from the current costs regime.

When asked if they were aware of the reforms, only 17% of Taylor&Emmet’s Twitter followers indicated their knowledge of and support for the government’s actions. The majority (66%) were opposed to the proposals, the remaining 17% were unaware of the bill.

Taylor&Emmet team turns out for Dronfield 10k

Sporty staff from local solicitors, Taylor&Emmet LLP, braved the heatwave to join Dronfield’s dedicated running community at the town’s annual 10k race.

The firm was not only the event’s main sponsor, but also entered a team of four, who all achieved times of less than one hour, despite the high temperatures.

Having been postponed earlier in the year due to snow, the Taylor&Emmet Dronfield 10k attracted 700 runners from across the area. The male and female races were won by Philip Hoole and Jane Batty, in times of 34:30 and 41:22 respectively.

Taylor&Emmet appoints trio of trainees

Sabrina Raham and Laura Hardy are the first to join Taylor&Emmet’s trainee programme. They will complete four six-month seats in various departments, before deciding upon a specialism. Martha O’Toole’s contract will commence on September 2 2019.

Expansion plans are child's play for Taylor&Emmet

Sheffield’s Taylor&Emmet LLP is on the hunt for multiple specialist solicitors to more than double the size of its childcare department.

As part of ambitious growth plans, the firm is seeking to recruit several individual lawyers, or potentially an existing team, including support staff.

Taylor&Emmet is taking the unusual step of expanding so rapidly to meet rising demand for its advice from local families and social services involved in conflicts surrounding children.

Sharna Poxon, Taylor&Emmet’s head of human resources, said: “Family law relating to children is a highly specialist and very challenging area of work and we want to build on the reputation we have already in this field to significantly increase our offering. We are looking for solicitors with varying levels of experience who have the sensitivity to handle these distressing matters sympathetically and professionally.”
