Midland law firm mfg Solicitors has bolstered its employment and HR services division with two new appointments as it increases its regional presence.

Employment specialist Darryll Thomas has joined as an associate after seven years at West Midlands practice, The Wilkes Partnership, while Amy McGowan-Docherty joins as a paralegal.

Reporting to partner and head of division, Sally Morris, Mr Thomas will work across the firm’s eight offices advising businesses and individuals on all aspects of employment law including TUPE transfers, performance, absence management and employment tribunal claims.

Miss McGowan-Docherty meanwhile takes up her first legal role and will closely support the team with their caseloads.

Sally Morris said: “Darryll has an impressive and proven track record in all areas of employment law here in the West Midlands so I am delighted to welcome him to the team as we grow further across the region.

“He is already proving to be an excellent addition to the firm, supporting our clients on many current issues, as they look for professional and concise advice.

“Amy meanwhile has a bright future in the industry and is a huge talent who never stops wanting to learn and develop. She is one to watch so I am delighted to have her on the team.”

Darryll Thomas added: “I have always been aware of mfg’s reputation and have watched as the firm has gone from strength to strength over the past 10 years.

“Led by Sally, the team is rated amongst the best in the region so I am very excited about the opportunity to play my part in building on its success.”

Mr Thomas and Miss McGowan-Docherty are the latest in a series of employment and HR appointments at the Worcestershire and Shropshire-based firm.

Last year partner Chris Piggott and HR services manager Samantha Haller-Evans both joined the team. The eight-strong division headed by Ms Morris now includes two partners and two associates.

mfg Solicitors has 35 partners and employs a workforce of over 160 people across eight offices in Worcestershire and Shropshire.
