We are delighted to have added eight new senior solicitors to our Business Services team.

Our Legal 500 ranked team has bolstered its commercial offering by bringing in key hires from competitors both within the Midlands region and from across the country.

In Commercial Property, we pulled off a coup in bringing Patricia Wright into the firm from Gowling WLG and Tracy Pyatt from Pickering & Butters LLP, both joining at Senior Associate level to continue our recent momentum as a commercial property partner to businesses across the country and as one of the nation’s leading franchise solicitors.

Jade Langford joins us as an Associate Solicitor in the Corporate & Commercial department, joining from George Green LLP where she spent seven years as a corporate solicitor advising clients on every stage of their business life cycle.

Our Dispute Resolution department has built on its High Court success and its Legal 500 ranking by adding four new senior solicitors, with directors, David Whiting and Tessa Rhodes, joining our Coventry office, which was established in May 2023 following the successful acquisition of Sarginsons Law. The department has also added a specialist insolvency service to its arsenal thanks to the appointments of Martin Lord and Stuart Turner, both joining from Lewis Onions Solicitors, who are in place to guide businesses through their options when considering insolvency.  The Dispute Team has an additional 3 lawyers joining the team in the Summer.

All of whom will be supported by our new Client Services Director, Tony Killeen, who brings a wealth of success and more than 30 years’ experience with market-leading professional services businesses, including long-term stints at Natwest and the Royal Bank of Scotland.

Thoughts from the CEO

Speaking on the new hires, Talbots CEO, Dave Hodgetts, said:

“Being able to attract such outstanding senior talent is a testament to the trajectory we are on and the work our Business Services Team have done in recent years.

Our aim is to establish ourselves as the legal solution of choice for businesses, both regionally and nationally, and these hires strengthen our opportunity to provide a 360-degree service to companies who need legal support.”

Looking ahead further into 2024, we have already agreed offers with multiple other senior solicitors within the industry and expects to continue the growth of our Business Service offer throughout 2024, with the addition of solicitors at senior level and a new Department head joining in Q3.
