The practice, which already has bases in Telford, Shrewsbury and Bridgnorth, has acquired LV Priestley and Son to strengthen its presence in the south of the county.

FBC Manby Bowdler partner Tom Devey said the deal represented a strategic expansion for the company, which would now boast eight offices across Shropshire and the West Midlands.

“We have been looking to grow the practice geographically for some time and this acquisition represents the right opportunity for us to realise a part of that ambition.”

LV Priestley and Son was established in the south Shropshire market town 40 years ago and boasts a loyal and longstanding client base.

Mr Devey said: “We will be moving staff with strong connections to Shropshire into the Church Stretton office to ensure we continue to provide the level of service existing clients are used to.”

The office will be rebranded as FBC Manby Bowdler premises in the next few months. FBC Manby Bowdler LLP is a 30-partner award winning regional law firm focused on and committed to intelligently delivering stellar service to its customers.
