Law firm mfg Solicitors has expanded its widely-respected commercial property team with the appointment of a new associate solicitor.
Experienced lawyer Phil Hunt has joined mfg and will be based at the firm’s growing offices in Birmingham.
Phil brings a variety of commercial property expertise acting for developers, investors and occupiers, with particular experience in battery storage projects.
Working alongside partner Beth Margetson, Phil will support Birmingham’s growing client base.
Beth Margetson said: “Phil is a superb addition to our team who has the advantage of already knowing many of our clients from when we have worked together previously. Phil brings extensive experience advising on a variety of development projects, as well as being adept at working with both landlords and tenants to settle occupational arrangements.”
Phil Hunt added: “I’m pleased to join a business that is committed to investing in its Birmingham-based team. It will be exciting to be a part of realising the firm’s ambitions in our current fast-paced market.
I’m really looking forward to working with my new colleagues to explore and secure new opportunities in Birmingham.”
The team has also recently welcomed commercial property paralegal Yasmin Yau-Karim who will work alongside Beth, Phil and consultant Brian Flint.
Headed up by partner Clare Regan, mfg’s Commercial Property team has experienced lawyers across its offices in Birmingham, Worcestershire and Shropshire. The firm moved into the Birmingham market in 2018 when it merged with historic firm, Pearson Rowe.
