Respected family law expert joins Taylor&Emmet

Taylor&Emmet's new family law associate, Linsey Duggan.

A longstanding member of Sheffield’s family law community is joining local solicitors, Taylor&Emmet LLP, to strengthen the services it offers to city residents.

The firm has appointed associate chartered legal executive, Linsey Duggan, to handle a wide range of matters arising from divorce and separation.

Linsey worked previously at Sheffield’s Norrie Waite and Slater, where she began her career as an office junior 23 years ago. Although she will be based at Taylor&Emmet’s city centre headquarters when the office reopens, she is already building up her caseload from home, taking on new clients, via telephone and video messaging meetings.

She said: “Moving to Taylor&Emmet was a big step after so long with one firm, but it marks the next phase in my career and I am looking forward to the opportunities it presents. Starting at a new firm under lockdown has certainly been challenging, but I have received plenty of support from my colleagues and I am really enjoying being part of such a professional, ambitious team.”

Taylor&Emmet’s family law department has continued to assist new and existing clients throughout the lockdown period, finding innovative and creative ways to move matters forward, particularly those that are time critical, such as injunctions.

Michaela Evans, the firm’s head of family law, added: “It is a pleasure to welcome Linsey to the team. She has an excellent reputation locally and has thrown herself into her new role with enthusiasm and a real passion for the work. I have no doubt her knowledge and experience will be an asset to the firm and we are looking forward to getting to know her better when we can finally reunite in our offices.”
