SWIFT SUCCESS FOR NEW BRISBANE FIRM

SWIFT SUCCESS FOR NEW BRISBANE FIRM

TALBOT Sayer has only been in business for 18 months, but the sheer volume of clients already walking through the doors has come as a welcome surprise to its founders.

Partner Oliver Talbot (pictured) is a specialist in mergers and acquisitions, private equity and commercial agreements at Talbot Sayer, one of Brisbane's up-and-coming corporate firms.

"The firm has been lucky in that we have been busy from the very start," says Talbot.

Talbot attributes the firm's fast success to a model that possesses the characteristics of a top tier firm, downsized to suit clients operating to a tighter budget.

"We built Talbot Sayer on a value focus for clients in our particular niche, in the small to mid-market mergers and acquisitions range," says Talbot.

"The reason for doing this was because we thought it was a niche that other top tier firms weren't able to service cost effectively."

Both Talbot and co-founder Tim Sayer left partnership positions with McCullough Robertson to embark on the journey of creating their own firm, a move that Talbot deems an exciting challenge given the current state of the legal market.

The firm has also been able to find its feet quickly due to a slick transition from company to company and a streamlined client base, according to Talbot.

"I think there's a move towards different models of legal service. The industry is in a bit of a state of transition and clients want different things from their lawyers.

"There are always challenges in this line of work, but I think one of the advantages of running a newer and smaller practice is that you don't have the legacy issues that larger and older practices might have."

Talbot Sayer is committed to growing its operations within the next year, taking on partner Dan Collins in December to bolster the firm's offerings in real estate and property.
