Local solicitors, Taylor&Emmet LLP, were presented with the ‘Residential Property – Team of the Year’ accolade at Sheffield and District Law Society’s Yorkshire Law Banquet and Awards.
The firm was also honoured for its charitable efforts, after raising the most in sponsorship at last year’s Sheffield Legal Walk.
Held at the Crowne Plaza Royal Victoria in Sheffield, the Yorkshire Law Banquet and Awards is a celebration of the region’s brightest and best solicitors and their achievements in the last 12 months. Taylor&Emmet secured the residential property prize after demonstrating its achievement in the sector, dedication to clients and contribution to the community.
Neil Riley, head of the firm’s residential property team, said: “We are thrilled to be recognised as the region’s top conveyancers by our colleagues in the legal sector. We have worked exceptionally hard in the last two years to streamline our service and provide clients with the transactional speed and ease of access they expect. We are very proud of the transformation we have achieved and this award win is testament to the hard work and dedication shown by the entire team.”
A trio of young solicitors led Taylor&Emmet’s participation in the 10-kilometre Sheffield Legal Walk, contributing £980 of the total £4,100 raised, which is donated to charities providing free legal advice. Clinical negligence specialist, Samantha Sims and trainee solicitors, Amy Parsons and Martha O’Toole, have already volunteered to be part of the organising committee for this year’s event and will be hoping to build on their success.
Taylor&Emmet was also shortlisted by the Sheffield and District Law Society for its private client, family law, personal injury/clinical negligence and rising star of the year awards.
