A WORCESTERSHIRE legal firm has announced series of promotions as it continues its growth plans across the county.

Law firm mfg Solicitors, which has offices across Worcestershire, has announced the promotion of six specialist lawyers to senior associate positions.

In its Private Client team, highly regarded wills and probate lawyers Amanda Piper, Janna Vigar, Kim Scolari and Rachel Summers have been promoted to senior associate roles.

All four lawyers, who work within mfg’s Worcester, Kidderminster and Bromsgrove offices, will continue to work closely with partner and head of division, Valerie Robinson.

Respected agricultural specialist Helen Gough has also been promoted into a senior associate role.

An expert in farm tenancy disputes, agricultural reform and other contentious matters, Worcester-based Helen joined mfg in 2014 and has become a key figure in the firm’s award winning agricultural division which is led by partner, Iain Morrison.

Licensed residential conveyancing lawyer Sandra Clifford also becomes a senior associate as she marks her 30th year with mfg. She will continue to advise clients on a variety of residential property matters, including both sales and purchases.

Maynard Burton, partner and chairman at mfg Solicitors, said: “All six of these senior associate promotions are fully deserved and more than anything, they underline the strength of talent we have across a variety of departments and specialisms.

“All six have exceptional credentials both internally and with clients and I look forward to watching them develop further in the coming months and years.”

Elsewhere, the firm has also brought in two property experts to its Bromsgrove office.

David Faulkner has been appointed as an associate, while Stephanie Rushfirth joins the firm as a solicitor.

Mr Faulkner, from Worcester, has several years of experience specialising in residential property including sales, purchases, re-mortgages, transfers of equity, purchase of freeholds, lease extensions and auction sales.

He said: "mfg is a highly respected firm with first-class credentials in all areas of law.

"I look forward to doing all I can to build on and develop that reputation further in the months and years ahead. It is an exciting move for me."
