Worcestershire law firm mfg Solicitors has added further expertise to its Family division following a continued period of unprecedented growth.

The firm, which has offices across Worcestershire, Shropshire and in Birmingham, has appointed Sian Kenkre as a partner based at its Bromsgrove office, whilst Anna Robinson joins as a senior associate working from mfg’s Kidderminster headquarters.

With 22 years’ experience, and highly recommended in the Legal 500, Sian is a widely respected specialist in divorce, personal financial settlements and complex child-related cases, including surrogacy. She is also a trained collaborative lawyer and a member of Resolution, the community of family law professionals.

Anna, meanwhile, qualified in 2013 and over the past 10 years has built a reputation for dealing with all aspects of family-related issues, also with a specialism in divorce matters, alongside cases relating to children. Anna is also a member of Resolution and an accredited expert in complex financial matters.

Both will work closely with partner and head of department, Katherine Tippetts.

Katherine Tippetts said: “As we prepare to move into a new year, I am delighted to welcome Sian and Anna into the team.

“Both have first-rate reputations in the legal industry and are known across the West Midlands for their professionalism, compassion, and absolute focus on client satisfaction. They join us at a time when we are dealing with more family matters than ever, so it’s vital that we have the strongest team possible with a busy 2024 ahead.

“Sian and Anna are already making an impact internally and with our clients. I look forward to them contributing to our success in the months and years ahead.”

The two new appointments follow leadership changes in the firm’s Family team this summer, which saw Ms Tippetts taking over as head of department from partner Claire Backler who stepped down from the role after a successful decade of growth.

Highly ranked for over a decade in the Legal 500, the team specialises in all areas of Family law including, divorce-related financial matters and issues relating to children, pre and post nuptial agreements, cohabitation and injunctions.
