An experienced commercial property specialist has been appointed at Sheffield solicitors Taylor&Emmet to strengthen its offering to local businesses.
Richard Whiteley is joining the team to offer advice on complex and commercial property matters of all sizes.
Mr Whiteley has spent the last 15 years at Ellis-Fermor Negus, where he spearheaded the opening and growth of its Belper office.
“Having established myself in Derbyshire, it was a big decision to move into a new market, but the opportunity at Taylor&Emmet was too good to pass up,” he said.
“I had encountered the firm in previous transactions and admired its efficiency and professionalism.
“The business legal services team has a breadth of expertise only usually found in larger practices and I look forward to playing an integral role in its future success.”
Neil Riley, Taylor&Emmet’s head of real estate, added: “I would like to welcome Richard to the firm. His commercial acumen and approachable nature are already proving popular with clients and I have no doubt he will quickly build a reputation for excellence within the Sheffield city region. He is a great addition to our commercial property team.”
