Taylors expands its employment team

Taylors Solicitors has expanded its employment team at both its Blackburn and Manchester offices following increased demand for its specialist services.

Ashna Chada, who has joined the firm from Pannone, will be based at the firm's Blackburn office and will support Emma Swan, who was recently promoted to Partner and who leads on Taylors' employment services to its Lancashire-based clients.

The firm's Manchester team has also recently appointed Tom Saville who has joined Taylors after spending five years with Altrincham-based Myers Lister Price, where he was the lead employment lawyer.

Will Clayton, Taylors' head of employment, said: "During the last twelve months, we have seen a significant 36% increase in the level of demand for our specialist employment services. This increase has come from our loyal existing client base as well as those clients that have chosen to work with Taylors for the first time, where we've seen a pleasing 65% increase compared to 2012. "This is testament to the standard of client care that we offer, as well as to the commerciality and technical excellence of the team".
