mfg merges with 100-year-old law firm

Law firm mfg Solicitors has expanded into Birmingham after concluding a deal to merge with Pearson Rowe.

With five offices across Worcestershire and Shropshire, mfg has merged with the two-partner firm, which currently employs 13 staff at its offices in St Paul’s Square, Birmingham.

The services mfg offers include commercial property, construction and engineering, buying and selling agricultural property and residential property.

Pearson Rowe – which specialises in a range of legal services – was originally founded on Colmore Row in 1918 by Geoffrey Pearson and marked its 100th anniversary this year.

Pearson Rowe’s St Paul’s Square base will now become a key regional office for mfg.

“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,” said Suzanne Lee, partner and managing director at mfg Solicitors.

“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.”

Brian Flint, partner at Pearson Rowe, 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 100th 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.”

This announcement comes five years after mfg merged with Phillips & Co in June 2013.
