Paul Reed

Director and Head of Residential Development

Paul works in our Business Services Team as Director and Head of Residential Development.

Paul has been a qualified Solicitor for over 20 years, qualifying in 1997. He joined Talbots from Stratford-upon-Avon based Lodders Solicitors LLP. Previously he was a partner at Shakespeares in Solihull and also Davies and Partners.

At Talbots, he assists clients with a range of residential conveyancing and property requirements, and specialises in acting for local and regional developer clients in giving “cradle to grave” advice in relation to the acquisition, set-up, plot sales and post-completion handover of housing developments. Paul also assists clients with road and sewer agreements, planning agreements and deeds of grants to name but a few.

Away from the office, he lives with his wife Kaia, who originates from Estonia, and their young twins. Paul describes them as his biggest achievement and the inspiration for him to do a Charity Abseil in aid of Birmingham's Women's Hospital in 2015 on behalf of their neo-natal unit. When not climbing down buildings, Paul and his family spend a lot of time at their holiday home in Tallinn on the Baltic Coast, which he highly recommends as a place to visit!
