Team - Tim Jobson
I have always enjoyed working with business men and women and have been lucky enough to practice for my entire career in or close to the Black Country with its no nonsense approach to business. I was educated at Bromsgrove School and Keble College Oxford, and trained at Wragge & Co in Birmingham, working as Head of Company Department for Lyon Clark & Co in West Bromwich for 16 years. Many clients whom I met then are still with me at Jobsons today.
After 10 years of head of corporate at Keelys Lichfield and 16 years in the same position at ORJ solicitors (formerly Oldham Rust Jobson) Stafford, I took my excellent team with me to create Jobsons Solicitors in 2011.
I am a member of the Board of Stafford Chamber of Commerce and a past President of the Chamber. I am also a Council member of Staffordshire Chambers, a Board member of Stafford Enterprise and a Trustee of Stafford Works
I enjoy racing my Solo sailing dinghy at Barnt Green Sailing Club where I am a past Commodore, Company Secretary and Royal Yachting Association Club Racing Coach.
I qualified as a solicitor in 1982 after completing my articles and training in Walsall. From there I moved to work for a considerable time in Local Authority with Cannock Chase District Council later moving to Stafford.
In December 2015 I joined Tim at Jobsons as Head of his Wills, Trusts and Probate Team. I had previously worked with Tim at ORJ Solicitors and I have now taken the opportunity to re-establish our longstanding relationship.
I believe this only goes to emphasise the close working interaction between all of the members of Tim’s team. This is integral to the ethos at Jobsons and is reflected in our professional approach to our clients and the issues facing them.
It is a pleasure to re-join Tim at Jobsons and I am fully enjoying working within a very sensitive but rewarding area of the Law.
Outside the Law, I am a keen tennis player currently representing my local tennis club where I have been a member for many years.
