Sheffield’s Taylor&Emmet LLP has retained its position among the region’s highest-ranking family law specialists in the 2021 edition of The Legal 500.

The firm is one of only three recommended in tier one for family law by the definitive industry guide, whilst department head, Michaela Evans, is recognised as a ‘leading individual.’

In total, Taylor&Emmet is recommended in seven areas of practice, including corporate and commercial work, in which it ranks in tier three and is described as a “key name for owner-managed businesses in the South Yorkshire region.”

The firm’s contentious trusts and probate team retains its tier two status, whilst tier three rankings have also been awarded to the wills and probate, commercial litigation, personal injury and clinical negligence teams. Head of clinical negligence, James Drydale, is described as “standout” and the growing department is praised for its “patient and understanding approach.”

Steve Hinshelwood, Taylor&Emmet’s chief executive, said: “One again, our exemplary family law team is flying the flag for Sheffield in The Legal 500, demonstrating the breadth and depth of its expertise in matrimonial and childcare matters. We are pleased to receive such positive testimonials from those surveyed and to be recognised in so many areas of practice for the high-quality service we provide.”
