Talbots creates 30 new jobs in Coventry


Employee-owned Talbots Law plans substantial growth, creating 30 jobs and expanding services, targeting Coventry's legal prominence

Talbots Law, an employee-owned law firm, is set to undergo significant expansion in Coventry, with a major recruitment drive aiming to create over 30 new jobs. Following the acquisition of Sarginsons Law in May last year, Talbots Law is on track to triple the size of its operation in the city.

The ambitious growth plans involve hiring legal assistants, solicitors, administrative staff, and several Director positions. The firm aims to increase its fees from £1 million to £3 million within the next 18 months, concurrently broadening its service offerings to local individuals and businesses.

As part of this expansion initiative, Talbots Law has recently completed a sympathetic refurbishment of its 1850s listed home on the Quadrant in Coventry. The refurbishment preserves period features while incorporating new flooring and energy-efficient lighting.

Dave Hodgetts, Chief Executive of Talbots Law, outlined the firm's vision for 2024, emphasizing the massive potential to grow its footprint in the city. With the refurbishment complete, the focus now shifts to building a robust team, with plans to increase the workforce to 50 people.

The objective is to establish Talbots Law as one of Coventry's leading law firms, offering a comprehensive range of legal services tailored to the local community. The expansion plan includes creating a dedicated business services hub at the Quadrant office, providing companies with resources to manage day-to-day scenarios, address employment and HR issues, offer dispute resolution support, and assist with future planning.

Additionally, Talbots Law will introduce a new insolvency service in Coventry, led by Martin Lord, an experienced specialist in restructuring, insolvency, and dispute resolution.

Dave Hodgetts highlighted Talbots Law's distinctive approach, driven by the decision to become an Employee Ownership Trust (EOT) in November 2021. This move fosters a unique 'team' atmosphere, with a strong focus on staff development and personal progression plans for each employee. The firm's commitment to its people has recently been acknowledged with a 2 Star rating in the Best Companies Awards.
