A period of unprecedented growth has seen one of the region's leading legal teams adding to its ranks.
The Private Client division at Worcestershire law firm mfg Solicitors, which advises individuals and families across the West Midlands, has appointed inheritance and estates specialist Sam Freeman to the department.
Based at the firm’s Worcester and Kidderminster offices, the 27 year-old will work alongside experienced lawyer Amanda Piper, the firm’s head of elderly care, advising clients across the region about Lasting Powers of Attorney, the Court of Protection, as well as probate, wills, trusts and estates.
Her appointment comes as Ms Piper has overseen a 40 per cent increase in client instructions at mfg’s Worcester office, with clients recommending Ms Piper for her service and attention to detail on issues including wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney, estate administration and legal considerations surrounding the care of elderly relatives.
Ms Piper, who is now into her 15th year with the law firm, said: “Sam has already made a great impression as she has been getting to know our clients and helping them navigate what can be complex and often highly emotional matters.
“As a firm we have seen a large increase in demand for our services, including in the field of care for the elderly, which is why we’ve appointed Sam to boost the team and grow even further.
“The matters that the Private Client team cover are often those that people would rather not have to think about, so it’s important to me to get issues such as wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney out of the way for people as quickly and as simply as possible, so families can go on being families but with peace of mind.”
