Rosemary has been a solicitor for twenty five years. Prior to joining Keeble Hawson she experienced what it's like to start a business as one of the founding partners in a new niche law practice - later acquired by a national firm. Since 2004 Rosemary has been a partner at Keeble Hawson leading a team that deal with work covering the full range of corporate and commercial issues. Clients, many of whom have been such for many years, range from small owner managed businesses to large companies with a national presence. Her clients value the partner led approach and her ability to mobilise an effective team to deal in a swift, comprehensive manner - facilitating rather than inhibiting transactions. With experience in many market sectors, Rosemary nevertheless maintains a particular interest in technology related businesses, the health sector, not for profit enterprises and franchising. Background: Rosemary enjoys presenting seminars to clients and others on legal and practical topics. She is also a member of the Society for Computers and Law. Rosemary is a qualified Notary Public - one of only four currently in South Yorkshire - details of which can be found on the Notary Public Sheffield website. Married with three teenage sons, her interests include rambling, cooking and choral singing.
