Submitted by on February 7, 2020 – 6:00 am |


Promotions 2020A trio of promotions are set to help one of the West Midlands leading independent law firms capitalise on a £2m increase in fees.

Talbots Law, which has six offices across the Black Country and Worcestershire, has appointed Claire Cooper, Liz Hulland and Yvonne Masters as Directors of the fast-growing business that saw turnover hit £14m last year.

The three of them have extensive experience of residential and commercial property and have developed a strong client base across professional services, high profile developers and estate agents.

They aren’t the only promotions being made by the firm, with Katie Wager and Sanjeev Sunder now Senior Associates and Aneesah Sheikh, Holly Elphick and Joe Foley moving into the position of Associates.

“2019 was a very good year for us, with strong performances in all areas, but specifically across our property and business services teams,” explained Mary Morgan, CEO of Talbots Law.

“18% growth surpassed our initial projections and to support the expansion we have appointed Claire, Liz and Yvonne as Directors. All of them are experts in their field and have shown a real passion for delivering high quality, cost effective legal advice for local people and companies.”

She went on to add: “Our people are at the heart of our approach and we are committed to investing in their training and their progression, giving them opportunities to maximise their potential.”

Claire Cooper, who has a background in individual and corporate insolvency, deals with all aspects of commercial leases and buying and selling of commercial property, supporting the purchase of development sites across the West Midlands.

Heading up the property team in the Kidderminster office, Liz Hulland specialises in all areas of residential property, including higher value and barn conversion properties.

Yvonne Masters started her career as a local estate agent before moving into a Black Country legal practice, joining Talbots in January 2018.

She concluded: “I’ve got over 18 years of conveyancing experience and combine this with knowledge gained from my time as an estate agent to deliver a proactive and strong legal offer to our clients.

“Promotion to Director is a fantastic opportunity and I’m delighted that I will be able to help shape the way we deliver outstanding legal advice to local individuals and businesses.”

Talbots, which has six offices in Codsall, Dudley, Halesowen, Kidderminster, Stourbridge and on Waterloo Road in Wolverhampton, is looking to create 15 new jobs in 2020.
