Conveyancing specialist, Neil, joined Taylor&Emmet in 2006 and has worked at all of its offices, except the most recent addition in Bakewell. His popularity with clients and industry knowledge has seen him rise quickly, securing promotion to associate only a year after his appointment and being made a partner in 2012.
