Sheffield’s Taylor&Emmet LLP is expanding its reach across the region by opening a new office in the heart of Rotherham.

The investment is part of the local solicitors’ ambitious growth plans and takes its number of offices in South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire to five.

Based at 15 High Street in the town centre, Taylor&Emmet’s Rotherham premises are now open with the installation of residential conveyancing and family law teams, including mediation and childcare specialists. The firm’s full range of business and personal legal services will be accessible, however, as space is available for members of other departments to meet clients by appointment.

For the heads of the conveyancing and family teams, Neil Riley and Michaela Heathcote, opening a Rotherham office has particular significance, as they both grew up in the town.

Neil, who still lives locally, said: “I am excited to be making Taylor&Emmet’s unique range of customer-focused legal services available in a convenient location for my fellow Rotherham residents. It is no secret the town centre has faced a number of challenges during recent years, but there seems to be a renewed sense of optimism, following record investment in the borough. I am really pleased we are contributing to its future development.”

Taylor&Emmet currently operates from premises on Arundel Gate in Sheffield city centre, Banner Cross, Bakewell and Dronfield. To find out more about its expansion into Rotherham, call into its High Street office, telephone (01709) 916961, visit or follow the firm on Twitter, @tayloremmet.
