'Bombshell' defection at city law firm

A MAJOR Sheffield law firm has been hit by a "bombshell" after most of its senior staff announced they are walking out to set up an office for a rival company.

Former Sheffield businesswoman of the year Suzanne Liversidge, and seven other partners, are quitting Halliwells and taking 45 other lawyers and around 20 support staff with them.

Ms Liversidge, who launched Manchester-based Halliwells' operation in Sheffield 12 years ago, will now head a new Sheffield office for insurance law specialist Kennedys.
