Law firm expands contentious probate offering

A Ludlow law firm has announced the expansion of its contentious probate offering to help meet growing demand.

Corve Street-based mfg Solicitors has announced that Robert Weston, partner and a leading will dispute lawyers, will now be based between the firm’s Kidderminster headquarters and Ludlow as part of the firm’s expansion of its wills and estate dispute services.

Weston said: “More and more people in Ludlow are now relying on our legal services and there has been a particular increase in demand for contentious probate advice – especially for high value estates and cases involving farms.

“I am delighted that I’ll be spending more time in Ludlow, helping and supporting clients. Ultimately, it brings more of our services under one roof, while also making use of our network of offices.”

Weston is head of the firm’s contentious probate team and has led a number of successful and high-profile High Court cases.

This summer will mark seven years since mfg Solicitors merged with Ludlow’s Phillips and Co. Since then the firm has expanded rapidly, offering a wider variety of legal services for individuals and businesses across Ludlow, Shropshire and into Wales.
