The present law firm of Tallents Solicitors can trace its roots back to Tallents & Co, which was founded by Mr Philip Tallents of Newark on Trent, who was admitted as a solicitor in 1774. Today the firm has three offices in Newark, Southwell and Mansfield.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, our staff will be taking part in a range of activities from bake sales, fundraising and volunteering, all with the aim of helping our local communities, residents and charities.

Volunteering at Newark Emmaus Trust

Staff from Tallents Solicitors volunteered at the Newark Emmaus Trust as part of their 250 Anniversary Celebrations.

The team filled over 30 bags of rubbish on the day of volunteering!

Led by Partner Andy Stout, an intrepid bunch of staff from our Newark office braved a jungle of a garden to help out the Newark Emmaus Trust. The charity had recently bought a property, which will eventually help out the young homeless of Newark, but first the garden needed some serious TLC. The team took everything in their stride, including the discovery of an old well in the garden at one point! Luckily, no one fell in!
