Midland law firm mfg Solicitors has expanded its employment and HR services division with the appointment of a new partner.
Chris Piggott has joined mfg and will be based at the firm’s Adam House headquarters in Kidderminster - reporting to partner and head of department, Sally Morris.
Acting for numerous established UK businesses - ranging from small enterprises through to major corporate PLCs - on key employee-relations issues including TUPE transfers and organisational change, Mr Piggott is also a regular trainer to organisations on employment law and HR practices.
As a partner, he will support Ms Morris in bolstering the firm’s employment and HR presence in the West Midlands.
Ms Morris said: “Chris has an immense reputation not just here in the West Midlands, but across the country.
“He is exactly the type of person we want as part of the team at mfg. He has extensive experience, is well respected and is someone who always puts clients and their interests first.
“As an employment and HR services department we are thriving and working in partnership with more West Midlands businesses than ever before.
“Chris will be key in terms of enhancing those existing relations and developing relationships with new clients. He is already proving to be a tremendous addition to mfg.”
Mr Piggott added: “mfg Solicitors have been going from strength to strength in recent years and looking from the outside in you cannot fail to notice their consistent growth, ambition and credentials.
“Sally has developed a dynamic regional employment team to rival city practices. I am very much looking forward to being part of the team and making a contribution in the months and years ahead.”
