Solicitor, Sarah Coates-Madden, has relocated from Hull to work with the firm’s litigation experts, providing advice to the region’s landlords and tenants.

Having worked previously at Gosschalks in Hull, where she was recognised by The Legal 500 as a ‘sensible and pragmatic lawyer’, Sarah will continue to specialise in property litigation matters at Taylor&Emmet.

A family law expert from the Dronfield office of Taylor&Emmet LLP has met the area’s member of parliament to campaign for better rights for unmarried couples.

As members of Resolution, the organisers of Cohabitation Awareness Week, Taylor&Emmet is lobbying for statutory changes to give unmarried couples the same legal protection, if the relationship breaks down, as those in marriages or civil partnerships. Currently, cohabitation is not recognised in law, regardless of how long the parties have lived together.

Taylor&Emmet’s probate team took part in St Luke’s Wills Month, creating more than 30 new and updated wills for clients, in return for a donation. The initiative kicked off the firm’s fundraising, banking £3,145.
