47 Bank Street
Sheffield is a city in South Yorkshire, with a population of more than 570,000.
With its roots placed firmly in the industrial revolution, and is famous worldwide for its cutlery, Sheffield is also credited as being the birthplace of football (soccer) with the creation of The Sheffield Rules and Sheffield FC (the world’s oldest football club) in 1857. The Sheffield of today is a vibrant and innovative city and one of the greenest in the UK. The landscape benefits from many parks and gardens. It also merges into the Peak District National Park, which lies within its borders.
Historically speaking, Sheffield is known as the Steel City, due to its role at the forefront of steel production in the 18th and 19th centuries. Fast forward to today and Sheffield is a city experiencing a renaissance with the digital, creative and technology industries just some of the major growth areas.
Manufacturing remains an extremely important industry within the city and the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) and the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (NAMRC) at the University of Sheffield are having a major international impact, producing, among other things, parts for the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner and for Formula One.
Sheffield boasts two world-class universities, bringing over 58,000 students to the city each year. The University of Sheffield is a member of the prestigious Russell Group, while the business-focused approach of Sheffield Hallam University enables it to work closely with major industry leaders such as Sony, Microsoft, Cisco and BP.
Major employers in the city include HSBC, Boeing, Rolls Royce, Sky and BT, although the public sector is still the largest employer in the city.
Culture and Social Scene
Sheffield is renowned for its sporting heritage and is home to Sheffield United FC, Sheffield Wednesday FC and the World Snooker Championship at the iconic Crucible Theatre.
The Crucible helps to make up the largest theatre complex outside London along with the Lyceum Theatre. Together they offer a wide programme of events including West End musicals, cutting-edge drama and home-grown performances.
With its many theatres, museums, galleries, music festivals and sporting events, the city undoubtedly has an enviable cultural programme.
Music is in the city’s blood with acts such as Arctic Monkeys, Pulp, Def Leppard, The Human League and Joe Cocker all originating here so it’s no surprise that there is a thriving music scene with numerous venues hosting bands, solo artists and DJs throughout the year.
Legal Services and cases in Sheffield
Sheffield is currently in the midst of major regeneration and redevelopment work. Office and residential space in the city is now at a premium and property law is a key part of the legal landscape. The residential property market is also very active. Our specialist lawyers represent numerous clients on a range of issues including conveyancing, property development and planning and property disputes.
With the city’s large-scale regeneration comes an increased number of businesses setting up and moving in. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are at the heart of the Sheffield City Region’s economy and Lupton Fawcett represents a high number of these, including many family-owned businesses, on different aspects of corporate/commercial and employment law. It is important that we get to know our clients really well and pride ourselves on excellent communication and relations with you. We like to think of ourselves as an extension of your business and can take care of all your legal requirements at every stage.
Another element to the longer-term plans for Sheffield is the proposed HS2 high-speed rail line, which is due to come to the city in 2033. Although reception to the plans has been largely positive, there have been a number of legal challenges along the way which have centred around environmental disputes, contract issues and planning problems. With the first phase of the railway not set to open for another decade, this is an issue that is likely to continue for some time.
