Midland firm MFG Solicitors has announced plans to relocate its employment division to its offices in Worcester city centre.

Led by partner Sally Morris, MFG’s six-strong employment team, currently based in Halesowen, will transfer in May to the firm’s Worcester offices.

Richard Connolly, managing partner at MFG, said: “It is a period of exciting and successful growth for MFG across the Midlands. We are an ambitious firm and feel moving our widely-admired employment team to our offices in Worcester represents a terrific opportunity to develop our commercial practice.”

Sally Morris, head of MFG’s employment division and a partner at the firm since 2006, added: “By moving the employment team to Worcester we are not only bringing more jobs and clients into the city, but I’m confident we will be in a stronger, more accessible position to offer legal advice to businesses across Worcestershire and the wider Midlands region. We are already heavily absorbed in the fabric of Worcester’s business community and are looking forward to increasing our profile further.”

MFG’s employment team is the largest of its kind in Worcestershire and consists of one partner, an associate, an assistant solicitor as well as one paralegal executive. The team is supported by two secretaries.

The firm’s Worcester office also accommodates MFG’s agricultural and rural affairs team, the family and property divisions and private client teams.
