The employment team from a leading county law firm has been voted the best in Worcestershire.
The 10-strong employment and HR services department from mfg Solicitors has won the Professional Discipline Award at the annual Worcestershire Law Society awards.
Led by partner Sally Morris, the department has built a renowned reputation for its services to large employers, small businesses and for employees – both across the county and the UK. Over the past 12 months alone it has successfully grown its number of clients by 25 per cent.
The team also hosts a variety of seminars and interactive workshops to help guide business leaders and directors through complicated employment law matters.
Partner and chairman of mfg Solicitors Maynard Burton said: “We are all extremely proud of the recognition our employment department has received at this year’s awards.
“The team delivers the best advice for clients time and time again – helping businesses step over the many pitfalls in what is a hugely complex area of law.
“Sally operates to the highest standards and has gained a UK-wide reputation over the past decade. Those high standards rub off on her team and the award is testament to their professionalism and commitment. It’s a tremendous milestone for the firm.”
Sally Morris, added: “To be recognised as Worcestershire’s top employment and HR legal department reflects the team’s hard work and the results we achieve for our clients, not just in the past 12 months, but over several years.
“We are delighted with the award in what is already proving to be another successful year.”
mfg Solicitors came top ahead of fellow county firms Harrison Clark Rickerbys and Hallmark Hulme in the category.
Also shortlisted from the firm at the awards were farming expert Helen Gough, trainee solicitor Jack Morley, and Sally Morris’s personal assistant, Lian Styring.
The Worcestershire Law Society was formed in 1841 to support and promote the work of the legal profession across the county. This year the awards were held at Stanbrook Abbey near Malvern.
Sally Morris was shortlisted for Partner of the Year in 2015 by the Birmingham Law Society and also sits on the board of the Worcestershire Ambassadors.
