Taylor&Emmet appoints employment law specialist

Taylor&Emmet has expanded its expert business services department with the appointment of an experienced employment law specialist.

Chartered legal executive Clare Moore will provide advice to clients on a range of employment-related matters.

Having spent the last six years at Gordons in Bradford, Moore welcomed the opportunity to return to work in Sheffield, where she lives.

She brings to Taylor&Emmet’s employment law team a range of experience in working with companies and individuals, along with a particular interest in discrimination and whistleblowing.

Commenting on her appointment, Moore said: “It is a pleasure to re-join South Yorkshire’s thriving legal sector, as part of a firm with such an excellent reputation for client care and no-nonsense legal advice. I worked with head of department, Kelly Gibson, ten years ago and it is great to rekindle that relationship. I am already fielding a wide variety of enquiries from clients and I look forward to finding positive outcomes to their issues.”

Taylor&Emmet’s employment law team acts for individuals and businesses of any size, across a range of sectors. It deals with all matters encountered in the management of people, including redundancy, TUPE and tribunal cases.

Taylor&Emmet’s head of employment law, Kelly Gibson, added: “Clare’s knowledge, skills and contacts will be a huge asset to the firm and I have no doubt her approachable, empathetic manner will be equally popular with clients. She has already fitted seamlessly into our team and I am really enjoying working with her once again.”

In January, Taylor&Emmet appointed a new chief executive to take over from Anthony Long, who retired last year.

Steve Hinshelwood is responsible for running all of the firm’s non-legal operations. He previously worked as a consultant to the conveyancing and probate teams.

Neil Riley, a member of the Taylor&Emmet management board, said in January: “In his time with us so far, Steve has already identified opportunities for growth and we are confident his enormous amount of leadership experience will be a real asset to the firm. He is well known and respected across Sheffield and the wider region and brings with him a wealth of knowledge and contacts that will give him an excellent strategic overview of our operations.”
