Employees are truly at the heart of West Midlands-based Talbots Law, not least because they own it.

A first for a law firm in the region, the decision in November 2021 to become an employee-owned business was taken to capture and protect the company’s independent, innovative, and passionate people culture by placing its staff at the legal specialist’s heart.

And that people culture is one that sees employees being given the freedom to innovate and be different, while being supported in their career goals and learning plans.

It’s something that’s widely promoted in Talbots’ local area of Stourbridge and its six offices around the West Midlands, where it has a local recruitment strategy that enables staff to offer specialist legal advice in language its clients can understand. The firm has an apprenticeship scheme and says strong local links are “an important part of who we are”.

Doing things differently is actively encouraged at Talbots. In order to understand how its employees were feeling during the Covid-19 pandemic lockdowns, it launched a programme called Dare to be Different. Employees shared their experiences with their teams and external experts and discussed the ways in which the business could do things differently.

The firm then hosted a series of "return to work" sessions to help ease the transition between working from home and returning to the office.
