Taylor Bracewell Solicitors LLP, based in Doncaster and Sheffield, have taken a big step to improve the services they offer their clients by converting to an Alternative Business Structure (ABS). This gives them the flexibility to develop completely new ways to help their clients. They are making an immediate start by appointing Clare Ashby, the firm’s Practice Manager, as a partner.
Taylor Bracewell believe that this is a major step forward. In the UK only 5% of solicitors have converted to an ABS, so the firm is one of very few in the South Yorkshire area which are leading the way by adopting this new business model.
Adopting the ABS model helps clients by increasing choice and competition, and allows law firms to develop a more diverse and complementary range of services. For example, solicitors can join up with other professional service businesses such as accountants, or to include such professionals as partners of the organisation.
As new services are developed and launched by Taylor Bracewell they will be available to all of their clients supported from their Doncaster and Sheffield offices.
Sharon Beck, Managing Partner, commented:
“I am delighted to welcome Clare to our partnership. These steps help us to stand out from the crowd in the legal world. The firm is breaking new ground in recognising that it is not exams which were taken many years ago that qualifies people to sit around the partnership table.”
“I am also excited to lead and to be part of such an innovative and forward thinking Law Practice. At Taylor Bracewell we aim to promote people based on their talent and abilities. Having the very best talent means we will offer exceptional solutions and services for our clients.”
Clare Ashby, Practice Partner, said:
“I am very proud to be part of the Taylor Bracewell team, and to have the opportunity to help guide the firm in the future. There are very few law firms which have made this change, and it just illustrates the forward thinking at Taylor Bracewell. And of course, our clients are the main beneficiaries of that constant desire to improve.”
