Wake Smith Solicitors has been an important cog in the business community in Sheffield for more than 200 years.

Part of our culture and business ethos is also to support the local community and this is demonstrated by several outreach projects across the city. Please see below to read more on our partnerships with the local community.


Sheffield Museums

Wake Smith Solicitors and Sheffield Museums launched a new legacy giving partnership in early 2018 to help ensure that great art and heritage can continue to inspire future generations in the city. We became the museum’s first ever legacies partner and are working with Museums Sheffield to encourage the city’s rich history of giving and philanthropy to continue.

The legacy giving programme offers the chance for individuals to remember Sheffield Museums by leaving a gift in their Wills which supports the museums and galleries’ work today, and in the future. A gift in your Will is simple to organise through Wake Smith Solicitors, its exempt from inheritance tax, and is a special way of making a vital, long term difference to your local museums and galleries.
