A LAW firm has reinforced its commitment to Kidderminster by giving its office a £150,000 makeover.

Talbots, which has operated in the town for more than 26 years, has sympathetically refurbished its listed Church Street premises to create a better environment for staff and clients.

The former office of well-known local solicitor Charles Talbot for more than hundred years, the building now sports the company’s new corporate identity and will benefit from additional dedicated meeting space, a new welcoming reception and the installation of the latest technology.

It is part of the firm’s desire to grow by more than 15 per cent in Worcestershire by offering access to specialists in residential and commercial property, family law, business services and trusts and estates.

Gillian Bowskill, Director of Talbots, said: “We are very passionate about our local roots and wanted to make sure our expansion in the Black Country was replicated here by taking on three new experts and providing a new look for our office.

“Twenty six people now work from our Church Street office and we have lawyers and support staff who have hundreds of years’ experience between them in helping people with their property transactions, family issues and in protecting their estates.”

Talbots has ensured that the restoration of the Kidderminster officer has been carried out sympathetically with its listed status in mind, employing specialists to repair cornices, coving, lime plastering and stonework.

It has combined traditional features that make the building stand out with a host of modern furnishings and technology.

The new-look office was revealed as part of a special opening for over 50 clients, partners and referrers.

Mary Mocklow, Chief Executive of Talbots Law, added: “We are passionate about delivering legal services differently and have a desire to grow our business by putting the client first and delivering more joined up services across all departments.

“The recent investment in our Kidderminster office reflects that as we look to grow our reputation as one of Worcestershire’s leading law firms.”

Talbots has seven offices with others based in Stourport, Stourbridge, Dudley, Halesowen, Wolverhampton and Codsall.
