West Midlands law firm expands into Birmingham
West Midlands-based law firm mfg Solicitors has continued its expansion plans by merging with Birmingham-based firm Pearson Rowe.
mfg Solicitors has five main offices across the West Midlands, with its head office in Kidderminster and offices in Worcester, Bromsgrove, Telford and Ludlow.
Pearson Rowe is a two-partner firm employing 13 staff at its offices in St Paul’s Square, Birmingham. Pearson Rowe was originally founded by Geoffrey Pearson on Birmingham’s Colmore Row in 1918, with the firm marking its 100th anniversary in 2018.
The firm’s existing St Paul’s Square office will now become a key regional office for mfg Solicitors, boosting the firm’s staff of 35 partners and 151 employees.
Partner and managing director of mfg Solicitors, Suzanne Lee, said:
“We have continued to grow both organically and commercially over recent years and have been carefully focusing on the best and correct strategic opportunity in Birmingham for some time.
“To gain a foothold in Birmingham’s thriving legal market through a merger with such a respected city law firm is therefore perfect for us – Pearson Rowe has a first-rate team of people and is known for the quality and depth of its advice.
“We feel we complement each other perfectly and our existing team of experts will add superb value to Pearson Rowe’s clients as they merge into mfg.
“It is another exciting chapter in our success story and we are delighted to be launching the mfg brand into the second city.”
mfg Solicitors merged with Ludlow firm Phillips & Co in June 2013 and that merger was followed in September 2013 with mfg expanding in Bromsgrove by merging with Scotts Holt & Sellars.
Partner at Pearson Rowe, Brian Flint, added:
“As a firm, mfg Solicitors has a hugely talented group of lawyers who are making an impact across all areas of private and commercial law.
“To be part of mfg is a big milestone for us as we mark our one hundredth year as a firm. More than anything, the merger will see us delivering a far greater breadth of advice for clients in and around Birmingham.”
