Midlands firm mfg Solicitors has strengthened its corporate and commercial offering with the appointment of a new partner.

Business specialist Clare Lang, who has 16 years of experience advising and supporting businesses, has joined the 33-partner firm. She will work alongside existing corporate and commercial partners, Stephen Wyer and James Hayes.

Based at the firm’s Kidderminster headquarters, she will focus on growing mfg’s corporate and commercial client base and advising clients across the region on mergers and acquisitions, business disposals, management buy outs, reorganisations, and a series of business-related finance matters.

Maynard Burton, partner and chairman of mfg Solicitors said: 'Clare is a first-rate and hugely admired corporate and commercial law specialist who will add significantly to an already respected team.

'Having successfully worked closely with both large and small businesses for 16 years, she has the credentials, track record and professionalism we look for in a partner.

'I am looking forward to Clare contributing to our success in the months and years ahead. She is already making a brilliant impact within the firm and with our clients regionally and nationally.'

Clare Lang added: 'Joining Stephen, James and the rest of the team at mfg Solicitors presents an exciting opportunity for me to grow and develop our corporate offering.

'The firm’s large client base of corporate businesses and high net-worth individuals is well recognised and impressive. I’m looking forward to strengthening the range of services provided by the firm and helping to cement mfg’s reputation as a premier provider of corporate and commercial legal services.
