Talbots Law > Firm Profile
Established in 1991 as a traditional family law firm, Talbots is now one of the largest independent law firms in the region, with a strong private client, and business and corporate services proposition.
The firm: With six offices located across the Black Country, Staffordshire and North Worcestershire, Talbots Law Limited has enjoyed a sustained high level of growth, achieved both organically and by acquisition. This growth has provided the opportunity to actively recruit new specialist lawyers, including the appointment of new directors and support staff, enabling it to provide a comprehensive range of legal services to private individuals, and business and corporate clients. The firm now employs in excess of 200 people.
The past year alone has seen the appointment of several new directors, including a new head of trusts and estates, and a new role in the appointment of a client relationship and business development director, to help drive the growth of the business. This growth has required the expansion and relocation of the Stourbridge office to larger and newly refurbished premises.
Talbots’ client base is a mix of private and business and corporate clients, both in the Black Country and nationally, and clients remark on the capability and dynamism of the firm. Professional, experienced and progressive, Talbots Law inspires its lawyers to be passionate about their work. In line with the firm’s ambition to be the region’s leading provider of choice, the team is given the freedom to innovate and be different, as long as they provide clients with clear, timely advice. It is also active in charity work, with Alzheimer’s Society, the firm’s charity of choice for 2017.
In January 2017 Talbots celebrated its 25-year anniversary with a spectacular evening of awards and memories – and looks forward to continued significant growth to £15m in the next three years, with particular focus on growing the business and corporate department.
