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.”

Taylor&Emmet listed among top legal websites

An independent survey of traffic to law firms’ websites has found Sheffield solicitors, Taylor&Emmet LLP, is head and shoulders above its regional rivals.

The firm is ranked second only to global behemoth, Irwin Mitchell, in South Yorkshire, attracting more visitors to its website than many far larger competitors.

On a national scale, Taylor&Emmet was ranked 20th by regional firms and 49th overall, with 159,619 UK web visits in 2017.

Taylor&Emmet welcomes new head of employment law

Sheffield’s Taylor&Emmet LLP has appointed an employment law specialist recognised by The Legal 500 to boost the services it offers to local businesses.

Having worked previously at Top 100 firms in Southampton and Leeds, Simon will be advising Taylor&Emmet clients on all aspects of human resources and employment law. He is an expert in both contentious and non-contentious matters, including contractual disputes, redundancies and high value, complex discrimination cases.

Due to the popularity of the 14,000 square foot property, Taylor&Emmet had to work quickly to bring the deal to a close, whilst ensuring its client was protected from any onerous liabilities.
