Three young county solicitors are celebrating after completing their training contracts with one of Worcestershire’s leading law firms.

Kidderminster-based lawyers Katie Hodson, Abbey Jones and Victoria Wall have completed their respective training contracts and are now set to take on more clients and cases at law firm mfg Solicitors.

The legal trio have worked their way through the ranks at the firm over the past few years – benefiting from working alongside leading legal experts.

Now she is fully qualified, Katie has joined the firm’s commercial property division and will work closely with partners Clare Regan and Peter Copsey on a host of commercial leasing, property and acquisition deals. She will also play a key role as part of the firm’s corporate and social responsibility committee which ensures funds are given to good causes across Worcestershire.

Abbey, meanwhile, will concentrate on building her experience within mfg’s growing corporate team working alongside partners Clare Lang, James Hayes and Stephen Wyer. She will advise on areas including corporate and commercial transactions, shareholder agreements and joint venture deals. She will also continue as the national representative for the Worcestershire Junior Lawyers Division.

The third lawyer to complete her training is Victoria Wall. As part of the firm’s contentious probate team, she will now work alongside partners Suzanne Lee  and Robert Weston, on a range of complex wills, probate and inheritance cases.

Maynard Burton, chairman of mfg Solicitors said: “Victoria, Katie and Abbey are quite rightly regarded as stars of the future and they have excelled during their respective training contracts.

“All three have exceptional qualities and are already popular with our clients for their manner and professionalism. They each fully deserve their success and I look forward to seeing them contributing more and more in the months and years ahead.”

All three lawyers will be based at mfg’s Kidderminster headquarters but also work alongside colleagues in the firm’s offices in Shropshire, Worcester, Bromsgrove and in Birmingham.
