Sheffield’s Taylor&Emmet LLP remains one of the region’s top firms of solicitors for family law, according to definitive industry guide, The Legal 500.

In total, the firm is listed in six areas of the 2022 edition, published yesterday, and head of family law, Michaela Evans, retains her position as a ‘leading individual.’

The family law team is described as “very experienced” and noted for having a strong track record in private children and domestic abuse cases. Michaela is described as an “outstanding matrimonial finance solicitor,” whilst her colleague and legal aid manager, Lucy Rodgers, is highlighted as “another important name to note.”

Taylor&Emmet is recognised in tier two of The Legal 500 for contentious probate work and four teams are ranked in tier three, including clinical negligence and personal injury, which is praised as “a beacon of quality in a world of increasingly commoditised personal injury litigation.”

Also in tier three is the “very well rounded” wills and probate team and the corporate and commercial department, which is noted for its work with the manufacturing and industrial sectors.

Steve Hinshelwood, Taylor&Emmet’s chief executive, said: “We are very pleased to achieve another strong showing in this year’s The Legal 500 and to see our exemplary family law team retain its well-deserved tier one status. The recognition we receive is thanks to the many talented individuals working here, who demonstrate such dedication to their clients and profession and we are very proud of their continued efforts.”
