New Chief Executive Takes Reins

We have appointed a new chief executive to help meet our strategic objectives for 2020 and beyond.

Steve Hinshelwood will have responsibility for running all of our non-legal operations, taking over from predecessor, Anthony Long, who retired last year.

Having worked as a consultant to the conveyancing and probate teams since May, Steve is well placed to drive the firm forward and find innovative ways to meet clients’ changing expectations.

Neil Riley, a member of our management board, said: “In his time with us so far, Steve has already identified opportunities for growth and we are confident his enormous amount of leadership experience will be a real asset to the firm. He is well known and respected across Sheffield and the wider region and brings with him a wealth of knowledge and contacts that will give him an excellent strategic overview of our operations.”

Steve has more than 30 years’ experience in the estate agency and financial services industries, most recently as managing director of Blundells. He added: “I am really pleased to be joining Taylor&Emmet on a permanent basis and eager to meet the teams I have yet to work alongside. We enjoy an excellent reputation for client care and it is my aim to retain our position at the forefront of the region’s legal sector, during changing times for the profession.”


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.
