Worcestershire law firm MFG Solicitors has been ranked as one of the region’s leading law firms for its work across several practice areas by the Legal 500, the respected independent guide to law firms.
The firm, which has offices in Worcester and Kidderminster, has been graded highly in seven legal practice areas which included the niche agriculture and rural sector, commercial litigation and family. Their work within the licencing industry was also recognised alongside the firm’s high-profile employment team and the taxation and commercial property departments.
Five of the firm’s lawyers were similarly singled out within the recently published 2012 guide.
In its Kidderminster-based commercial litigation team, partner Tom Esler was described as ‘very experienced while his colleague Suzanne Lee was also recommended – being described as a ‘highly competent litigator’.
Three of the firm’s Worcester-based partners also came in for commendations.
Matrimonial expert and partner Mercedes King-Jones was noted for her successes in advising on complex divorce and family trust cases while respected rural and agricultural expert, partner Iain Morrison, was listed as having ‘excellent knowledge and experience’. His colleague Sarah Denney-Richards, who heads the rural team, was also praised.
Suzanne Lee, partner and managing director at MFG Solicitors said: “To be ranked and recognised so much in this year’s Legal 500 is just reward for the hard work and success we have had over the past 12 months. We are growing our specialisms and our teams across not just these seven areas, but across the whole firm. It’s a great platform as we move towards 2013 – a year where we’ll be looking to spread our reputation wider and add further talent to our already strong team.”
The Legal 500 Series is now in its 25th year. It is widely acknowledged as the world’s largest legal referral guide. More than 250,000 corporate counsel have been surveyed and interviewed globally in the past 12 months. It is an independent guide, and firms and individuals are recommended purely on merit.
