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.”
