Taylor&Emmet in contention for law firm of the year

Taylor&Emmet chief executive, Steve Hinshelwood.

Sheffield solicitors, Taylor&Emmet LLP, are in the running for a prestigious industry award celebrating the cream of the region’s legal community.

Taylor&Emmet is one of seven practices shortlisted for Law Firm of the Year: Medium at this year’s Yorkshire Lawyer Awards.

The category is open to regional firms with between 50 and 250 employees or a turnover of £10-50 million. The finalists will be judged on various criteria, including their dedication to the development and welfare of staff, recognition by clients and colleagues and contribution to the community.

The award winners will be announced at a black-tie dinner held at New Dock Hall in Leeds on October 7. It will showcase the region’s legal capabilities and celebrate the outstanding achievements of the best solicitors and firms operating locally.

Steve Hinshelwood, Taylor&Emmet’s chief executive, said: “We are honoured to make the final of such a strongly contested category at this year’s Yorkshire Legal Awards. The pandemic dramatically accelerated our plans for agile working and we are now reaping the benefits, in terms of staff welfare, the client experience and our impact on the environment. We continue to build on these improvements and hopefully, the judges will recognise our efforts when the winners are announced in the autumn.”

Taylor&Emmet’s shortlisting in the Yorkshire Legal Awards follows similar success at the British Conveyancing Awards earlier this year, where new business manager, Elisha Birgul, was highly commended in the New Business Champion of the Year category.
