Taylor&Emmet installs new head at Bakewell office

Taylor&Emmet's new Bakewell branch manager, Richard Barlow.

Sheffield solicitors, Taylor&Emmet LLP, are welcoming a new branch manager to their Bakewell office to drive growth and development in the Peak District.

Experienced wills and probate partner, Richard Barlow, has relocated to Bakewell from the firm’s city centre headquarters to strengthen Taylor&Emmet’s presence in Derbyshire.

Richard is being joined in Bakewell by legal assistant, Sarah Jackson, and the pair will be working closely with members of the senior leadership team to deliver strategic plans to strengthen the office’s profile locally and forge relationships with all main stakeholders in the area.

Sharna Poxon, Taylor&Emmet’s HR director, said: “Richard is a highly regarded and extremely well-respected probate specialist, who will be a valuable addition to our Bakewell team. His appointment demonstrates our commitment to the Peak District and we have no doubt his wealth of experience in private client law and excellent managerial skills will help us realise our ambitions locally and reinforce the first-class service we provide to clients.”

Richard joined Taylor&Emmet in 2017 and has built up strong connections in Sheffield, Chesterfield and the Hope Valley. His specialisms include wills, estate and tax planning, probate and administration of estates and the creation and administration of trusts.
