Taylor&Emmet expands in Derbyshire with merger

Have your say

Sheffield law firm Taylor&Emmet is merging with long established Derbyshire solicitor Cockertons.

Bakewell-based Cockertons will retain its identity, staff and offices and become a division of Taylor&Emmet, while Michael Cockerton will act as a consultant, following his retirement at the end of last year.

Taylor&Emmet says the deal will widen the range of legal services available in Bakewell, with experts from its corporate and personal teams being available to meet clients at Cockertons’ office, expanding the firm’s remit to include family law, personal injury and clinical negligence.
