FBC Manby Bowdler invests in the next generation of lawyers


FBC Manby Bowdler’s investment in the next generation of legal talent continues with several new appointments and qualifications in the firm.

Joe Martin and Jas Kler have graduated from paralegal roles in our Litigation and Corporate teams to become trainee solicitors. Joining them is Clarissa Pritchard who has been welcomed to the firm to begin her legal training.

Last year’s intake of trainees - Sam Roberts, Kate Rowley and Matt Allen – have moved into their second year while three members of staff have gained their official qualifications.

Olivia Jones has qualified into the family department in Wolverhampton, and acts as a solicitor in the specialist Child Law team; Katherine Lloyd qualifies into Litigation joining the Disputed Probate team in Wolverhampton, and Fiona Sedgley qualifies into Agricultural & Rural Services, joining the team in Shrewsbury.

We now employ more than 160 people at our offices across the Black Country and Shropshire in Wolverhampton, Willenhall, Shrewsbury, Telford and Bridgnorth. 

Five of our departments - Commercial Litigation, Planning, Agriculture & Rural Services, Family and Contentious Trusts & Probate - were awarded Top Tier rankings in the latest Legal 500 independent guide to the region’s best law firms. Our lawyers also appear annually in the Chambers’ recommendations of the country’s best solicitors.
