Talbots receive top workplace ranking

Talbots Law has been named as the best legal firm to work for in the Black Country after moving up 13 places in the Sunday Times and Best Companies national list.

The independent law firm, which employs over 240 people across six offices in Codsall, Dudley, Halesowen, Kidderminster, Stourbridge and Wolverhampton, was in 52nd place on the prestigious rankings and was also awarded a 2-star rating for the way it engages with its staff.

Its index score improved by 4% from 2019 and was driven by high marks in personal growth, wellbeing and in being able to give something back, with over £50,000 raised for Birmingham Children’s Hospital in the last twelve months.

The company has also been using its legal expertise to support frontline NHS workers during Covid-19, providing a free will writing service for doctors, nurses, hospital staff and ambulance technicians.

“Our staff have been fantastic in continuing to support our clients throughout the pandemic, whether that is advising on commercial transactions or property enquiries to personal issues around trust and estates,” said Mary Morgan, chief executive of Talbots Law.

“A lot of this work has been done by our teams working at home, but we have now started to get more employees back into our six offices, all socially distancing and with additional safety measures, such as perspex screens, more hand sanitising stations and an appointment only system.

“The Best Companies ranking highlights what a great team we have and we’re delighted to be the best law firm to work for in the Black Country and in the top three across the Midlands. This is just the start. I’m determined that by improving our employee engagement we can achieve the 3-star rating in 2021.”

Talbots Law made a string of senior promotions at the beginning of the year to help it oversee expansion across all areas of the business and a £2m increase in fees on the previous twelve months.

Mary said: “Week by week, we are slowly seeing a lot of work that was put on hold starting to come back and also a significant number of new enquiries. It’s good to be back and supporting local Black Country and Worcestershire people and businesses.”
