Legal 500 Recognition for Head of Family Law

Our head of family law, Michaela Evans, has been named one of just four leading individuals in the region by industry barometer, The Legal 500.

The annual review of the legal market notes Michaela is “recommended by her clients without hesitation.”

Our celebrated family law team has retained its position as one of three in The Legal 500’s top tier in South and East Yorkshire and is described as “providing excellent advice in a personable way.” Legal Aid specialist, Lucy Rodgers, also receives a personal recommendation.

Under the guidance of department head, Alex Watkinson, our contentious probate team has retained its tier two status. It is noted for its breadth of work and its ability to attract local clients, as well as those from further afield, including London.

Four departments achieved tier three status, namely the corporate, commercial litigation, personal injury and clinical negligence teams. The latter was noted for “advising on claims of maximum severity and complexity” with three clinical negligence specialists being singled out by researchers, James Drydale, Paul Fouad and Camilla Attwood.

Well done Michaela on achieving The Legal 500’s highest accolade! It proves what we already know – that she is one of the very best in her field. Indeed, all 11 of our specialists named in the 2020 edition should be proud that their efforts have been recognised. We are all dedicated to putting the clients’ needs first and this has been reflected in the excellent reviews we received.


Taylor&Emmet LLP is one of the leading and most successful law firms in the South Yorkshire region, a position it has held for nearly 150 years. This success has been achieved by delivering the highest quality legal advice to business and private clients, many of whom have remained with the firm for generations.
