A KIDDERMINSTER law firm has strengthened its agricultural team with the appointment of a specialist lawyer.

Renewables expert Stewart Smith has joined mfg as an associate after almost a decade with Cheshire-based practice Walker Smith Way.

An experienced renewable energy specialist with a reputation for his advice on complex wind farm schemes, Mr Smith will work closely with partners Susan Morrissy and Iain Morrison across the firm’s Worcestershire and Shropshire offices.

Mr Morrison, partner and head of the agricultural and rural affairs division at mfg Solicitors, said: “Stewart is a first-class addition to the firm. He has the credentials and expertise we are looking for as we increase the depth of sustainable energy and environmental advice we provide.

“Over the past 12 months we have advised an increasing number of landowners on renewable and agri-environmental initiatives – not just in the Wyre Forest, but across the country.

“Stewart’s experience will add considerable strength to that growing client base as more landowners concentrate on the countless benefits environmental schemes can bring.”

Stewart Smith added: “To join what is widely thought of as one of the area’s leading and most admired agricultural teams is exciting.

“For many years mfg Solicitors has been admired throughout the industry for their rural and farming expertise. I am delighted to be part of that and to have the opportunity to bring my own experience to the firm and our clients.”
