Law firm expands commercial property team with new appointment

Worcestershire law firm mfg Solicitors has again expanded its respected commercial property department with the appointment of a new senior associate.

Based at the firm’s Kidderminster headquarters, commercial property expert Lauren Powers has joined mfg and will work closely with partners Clare Regan and Ben Rothery on a range of matters including complex transactions, refinancing, acquisitions and disposals of land and property, and landlord and tenant transactions.

Partner and head of department Clare Regan said: “We are now a team of 35 and continue to see extensive growth in the demand for our services. This means we have to meet that demand and expand the team by adding specialists who have a broad range of commercial property experience.

“Lauren is the perfect fit for the team and is well-respected in Worcestershire and the wider region.

“As a first-class lawyer, with exceptional eye for detail, she is already making her mark and will be a key part of the team in the months and year ahead.

Lauren Powers added: “The commercial property team here at mfg Solicitors has a fantastic regional and national reputation. I am delighted to be part of that and to play my role in enhancing that standing even further.

“Commercial property is a unique specialism which encompasses an enormous amount of matters, so I feel extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to work alongside such a brilliant and supportive team of lawyers.

“As we prepare to move into the second half of 2023, it has been a hugely busy period. That looks set to continue with the commercial property industry going from strength to strength, owners looking at their portfolios, and studying new opportunities.”
