Taylor Bracewell Recommended in the 2014 Legal 500
15th October 2014
Taylor Bracewell is absolutely delighted to announce that its family, contentious wills and probate and charity departments have been recommended in the 2014 Legal 500, renowned as the definitive independent guide to legal services.
Already highly successful in Doncaster, Taylor Bracewell opened its doors in Fountain Precinct, Sheffield earlier this year and has found the city very responsive to the practical 'one stop shop' legal services it offers. Managing partner, Sharon Beck says -I cannot congratulate the teams enough. Leaping recent hurdles such as the recession and huge changes in the legal arena, we have built a firm with a reputation for high quality, affordable legal services. Strengthening our teams significantly, we've introduced innovative new services and become involved in some fantastic organisations and projects, such as the Entrepreneurs Club, Franchising Conference, local colleges and schools and Kids in the Middle. The Legal 500's recommendation seems testimony to our hard word, and we are so pleased that we received the recognition on our first submission attempt. Sharon, a formidable company/commercial solicitor with over 20 years' experience, leads the firm's charity department. She has worked on prestigious regional projects, including The Deep in Hull, and has acted for Doncaster CVS for over 13 years. Her attention to detail, practical approach, and ability to get a job sorted quickly is highly appreciated within the not for profit sector. Sharon is a member of the Academy of Chief Executives. Taylor Bracewell's family department is led by partner and pioneering collaborative lawyer, Alison Kitchman. With over 25 years' experience, Alison is known as one of the best children lawyers in South Yorkshire. She is a member of the Law Society's Children Law Accreditation Scheme and Resolution, where she is a past chair of the South Yorkshire division and now active member and leader of the Doncaster/Rotherham POD. Peer comments such -Alison combines professionalism with real empathy; my first choice for anyone going through the trauma of family issues/relationship breakdown are a clear endorsement of Alison's reputation. Senior partner, Mark Beresford, is head of the firm's contentious trust and probate team. A Cambridge graduate, Mark has practiced law for almost 30 years. He thrives on particularly intellectually challenging, high value disputes and contentious trust and probate work. Mark is also the assistant coroner for South Yorkshire East. An extremely pro-active firm, Taylor Bracewell has quickly become highly engaged in Sheffield's legal scene and there is more to come!
