Robert Talbot

I have worked as a Practice Manager at practices of varying sizes for the past 14 years.

Having originally trained as an accountant, I have transferred those skills into the legal world and utilise my knowledge and experience to assist in driving business profitability through effective staff management and team strategy and freeing up fee earners to focus on clients and their business development.

I joined OGR Stock Denton last year and it is without a doubt the best place I have ever worked. There is so much to do but everyone is willing to embrace change and that in turn motivates me to work harder and drive us forward.

As part of my role with the firm, I focus on change management, compliance, lockup management, facilities, HR and IT. I also facilitate Partner meetings and assist the finance team on a regular basis with both reporting and general management.

I believe it is important to encourage business growth and help make a team more profitable, while continuing to ensure individuals feel valued.

Education/Background

I joined OGR Stock Denton in January 2015 as Practice Manager, bringing with me years of experience in similar roles at law firms of all sizes both in the City and regions.

Leisure interests

Away from the office I am a keen sportsman and plays disc golf regularly. I also picked up a love of all things Oriental while living in Hong Kong and am a keen amateur chef.
