When it comes to family matters, Irwin Mitchell’s team leads the way in South Yorkshire, with Sheffield-based head of the firm’s national team Martin Loxley highlighted for his work in high-value and complex cases, including cross-border matters.
The Irwins team has been joined by Melanie Hadwin, from Howells, which shares the second rank with another Sheffield firm, Taylor & Emmet. Alyson Siddall’s work at Howells is highlighted by the Legal 500, which also emphasises the work the firm does in the fields of public and private children law, financial remedies, and emergency work.
Taylor & Emmet’s four-partner team, headed by Michaela Heathcote, is rated strong on dealing with matters involving children. Graysons with Watson Esam, Lupton Fawcett Lee & Priestley and the Sheffield and Doncaster offices of HLW Keeble Hawson also secure places in the Legal 500’s rankings of firms dealing with family matters.
