Also recently joining Tallents are solicitors Amy Cook and Oliver Emmett, who are working in the Property Department at Newark. The Mansfield office welcomes solicitor Kimberley Rhule to their Family Law department.
Alistair said: “Tallents Solicitors have been helping more than nine generations of Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire citizens since 1774 and it’s wonderful to see the firm still growing so strongly nearly 250 years later. It’s a testament to the hard work and commitment of our staff towards their clients, that we are still one of the oldest law firms in the East Midlands and possibly the UK.
“As Senior Partner, I am looking forward to overseeing the continued success and growth of Tallents Solicitors as we move towards our quarter century milestone of legal service to the people of Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire.”
