Taylor&Emmet rewards talent at first conference

Taylor&Emmet has celebrated the achievements of the individuals and teams helping to drive the Sheffield law firm forward.

Awards were presented to stand-out performers in seven categories at the firm’s inaugural annual conference, held at the city’s historic Cutlers Hall.

The conference, which was attended by more than 200 Taylor&Emmet staff and external contacts, honoured those who embody the firm’s core values—approachability, integrity, excellence and community—as well as recognising a star of the year, department performance and new starters.

Clinical negligence specialist Sam Sims was named the law firm’s star performer for exceeding expectations professionally and in her support of community projects, and garnering consistently positive feedback.

Inger Roby and Joel Knight, from business legal services and accounts, respectively, shared the new stater accolade. Both have quickly established themselves within their teams and are exceptionally supportive of colleagues, according to Taylor&Emmet.

Sharna Poxon, HR director at Taylor&Emmet, said: “We are extremely proud of the individuals and teams whose work in the last 12 months secured them a spot among our award winners. It was great to see the entire firm coming together to celebrate excellence and learn more about the exciting plans we have for the future.”

This is the first time Taylor&Emmet has gathered its entire workforce to share its vision for the development of the firm, discuss ongoing projects and acknowledge the efforts of its team.

The event included information about ongoing growth and new initiatives, such as its commitment to raise £10,000 in this financial year for four local and national charities.

Steve Hinshelwood, chief executive at Taylor&Emmet, added: “Organising an event on the scale of our annual conference was a first for Taylor&Emmet, but it was well worth the effort!”

“After spending so long separated from our colleagues, it was a fantastic opportunity to explain just how far we’ve come during the pandemic, set out our ambitious plans for the future and reward everyone for their continued hard work and dedication.”
